Our Young Preschool is for children two and a half to to three and a half. Children should be close to being potty trained and we have frequent visits to the bathroom to help this process along. Our Young Preschool room is a gentle introduction to school. We work on becoming familiar with routines and adults who are different from mom and dad. Young preschoolers will have opportunities to paint, play outside, sing songs and make new friends!
Pre-K is such a fun year! Our program is designed for children their year before they start Kindergarten, but we are open to welcoming younger children who have an extra interest in letters and numbers. We provide many opportunities to become familiar with school routines, early literacy, beginning math and science and being a friend.
All of our students will have time in our Music & Movement classroom every week.

The curriculum of Morning Glory Preschool is developed around non-denominational Christian Values and traditions and developmentally appropriate practice. Our goal is to help develop kind and loving children. We provide a warm, accepting, and loving atmosphere where children come to learn about themselves, others, and God’s world. It is our commitment to foster each child’s self-esteem and self-confidence by encouraging hands on learning and creative play.
The core of our program at Morning Glory Preschool is Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
Each month, our classes plan lessons on one of these “fruits”. Teachers plan activities, read books and facilitate discussions on what these words mean to the children and encourage them to think of ways they can embrace the qualities. If we can send our little ones into the world with these qualities in their hearts, then we’ve given them a foundation to make a difference in the world!
Hands-on activities and experiences are planned weekly, based on emerging themes. Emergent Curriculum is responsive to children’s interests and encourages meaningful learning experiences. Children thrive and learn best when their interests are captured and learning occurs naturally.
