Eternal Hills Preschool

Where we live the golden rule

Eternal Hills Christian Preschool

Mission statement:

At Eternal Hills Christian Preschool we develop the whole child: Socially, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically in a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment.


Our toddlers are ages 12 months (independently walking) to 35 months. We know that learning happens because of play and is supported by exploration of the world around us. So, we focus on outdoor activities (hikes, outdoor play), sensory activities, music, stories, gross motor play and a variety of other enriching programs.

We have two groups of preschoolers; 3-4 years of age (Caterpillars), and 4-5 years of age (Butterflies). Surrounded by love and creativity, our preschool children gain independence, build relationships, and develop fine and gross motor skills in a carefully designed age-appropriate environment. Children at this age are exposed to: Handwriting Without Tears, Incredible Years, and Author of the Month programs. In addition, they each are given a portfolio through the Teaching Strategies Gold website.


The children love to play and utilize the environment year-round. We explore outdoors on our four acres and play indoors in our fantastic space that includes a gross motor room!
