It’s never too early to start learning about God’s love for us and exploring the world around us! At HFCS, our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs provide students with foundational skills for future academic success while emphasizing God’s love.

Students also learn important skills surrounding classroom behavior, peer interactions and begin to develop social skills. Letter and sound recognition, gross and fine motor skills, beginning music theory and rhythm, colors, and shapes engage and inspire the young mind to grow. Our loving community reflects God’s love and enhances the faith lessons integrated into daily life. Preschool and Pre-K are growing toward God every day!
