In order to thank God for his unconditional love for all people, the preschool of Burke Presbyterian Church recognizes the intrinsic value of all children and their families.

We create learning experiences to promote children's physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual growth and development. In addition, we believe

      *Children interact with their neighbors as a catalyst for learning 

      *Children explore, experiment and discover the world around them through games

      *Children grow up in a learning environment that can be nurtured and maintained
