Welcome to Shine Kids Preschool

ShineKids Preschool will begin its second year for the 2022-2023 school year.
We love what we do and hope that you can grow with us!



We offer three different classes


  • Our 2 Year Old class is a beginning experience focusing on colors, shapes, and social skills.

  • Our 3/4 Year Old class builds on those skills and adds numbers, name recognition, and handwriting skills.

  • Our Pre-K class adds identifying and writing letters and numbers, as well as many other school readiness skills.

Bible instruction is included in each class.


What makes us different from other preschools in the area?


We are part of an established church that partially funds our programs. That means we can offer great classes for a much lower tuition. And if you have more than one child, we offer a 25% discount to the younger sibling who enrolls at ShineKids Preschool!

Preschool children and families are invited to other church activities designed for their age such as Toddler Gym, Parachute Play, Trunk or Treat, Egg Hunt, and Preschool Camp as scheduled by our ShineKids Children’s Ministry at no extra charge to you.

Even with our lower rates, we know that paying for preschool can be difficult for some families. That’s why we offer the Barry Henry Scholarship Fund, named after a wonderful man and former educator from our church who loved helping kids and seeing them learn. If you would like an application please call the church office at 717-898-8144.
