We serve children from 12 months of age (Playgroup) until they start kindergarten. The preschool follows the same holiday, vacation and inclement weather schedules as the Johnston County Public Schools traditional calendar, September-May. The hours of operation are 9:00am-1:00pm, Monday-Thursday.

Mission Statement

We seek to first and foremost love, serve and honor our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Secondly, we strive to instill into each and every child the love that Christ has for them and to be role models of Christian values. Thirdly, we aim to provide children with learning experiences that will help them develop strengths and skills necessary to prepare for their next school environment.

Proverbs 22:6 ~ Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not turn from it.

Matthew 19:14 ~ Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”

daily schedule of activities

(ages 2 and up)

We know that consistency gives children security. Our daily schedule of activities helps build trust between the children and teachers. JMC Preschool students grow physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually and spiritually.

Morning Play/Table Top Activities:  

Each child is offered a variety of hands on activities including blocks, counters, puzzles and other manipulatives. In addition to improving physical and cognitive skills, this child-directed activity enhances the ability to share and take turns.

Assembly Time: 

We meet in the Sanctuary or Fellowship Hall each morning. A morning prayer begins the session followed by pledges, music, movement and worship. 

Circle Time and Class Time:

These teacher-directed times introduce the children to the theme and concepts of the day. A Bible story is shared and discussed. We pray with the children and read to them. They share experiences, sing and listen to music. We discuss the weather, seasons and calendar. Throughout the day, we provide hands-on learning activities and crafts using themed units to introduce colors, shapes, math (i.e., counting, number recognition and sorting) and the alphabet. Literacy lessons are included in the four year old program to further demonstrate letter recognition, sounds and writing.


All classes are given a snack. (Each class has an individual plan for how snacks are provided.) Two years and up brings a daily lunch from home.

Outdoor Free Play:  

The children have daily free play outside, as long as the weather permits.
