Connect with the Preschool
Welcome to Prince of Peace Preschool! We regard it as a very special privilege that you have entrusted us with the care and development of your child. We look forward to serving you and your child throughout this school year. Our handbook contains a great deal of information about our program. If you have any questions, please call, email or stop by!
We work with children to assist them in their spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional development. We consider ourselves partners with you, the parents. Our teaching is done from a Christian perspective. We share basic Bible truths and their application to daily living with the children through our core curriculum. We would like to lead the children to know and love their Savior Jesus and to make Him a part of their daily lives.
In this Christian atmosphere, your children are considered to be special gifts from God and are treated with love and respect. They will be cared for in a gentle and loving way by our dedicated staff. We seek to impart timeless Christian values and ethics to equip the children to face an ever-changing world. All of this is done in a stimulating environment conducive to learning,
We are excited to serve you and your child. Your child will pursue Georgia’s preschool standards while learning to socialize with other children. These academic and behavioral skills will prepare your child for all-day Kindergarten. Yet most importantly your child will be taught each day of God’s amazing grace through His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jeanne began as an assistant teacher at the Preschool and has expanded her role to becoming the Director. She holds a BA from Texas A&M University and enjoys continuing her education through Georgia’s professional learning programs. Her favorite part of her “job” is teaching the children about Jesus, and she loves working with and learning from a team of amazing and creative teachers. The preschool’s recent three star rating for continuous quality improvement shows Jeanne’s commitment to creating and maintaining a safe and loving environment where your child can grow and thrive while exploring the world around them.
