Sierra Preschool


when I play,
I learn


We believe the early childhood years lay the foundation for much later learning. Hands-on learning will take place as the children are encouraged to participate in creative art, science, math games, stories, outdoor and circle times (song, games, fingerpaint, and more)
Our motto is: "When I Play, I Learn!"
This belief of encouraging each child's emotional, physical, intellectual and social development is central to our child-centered program.


Parent co-op also means helping at school 1-3 times per month, meeting other parents, getting to know their children, and best of all, be directly involved in the early education of your child.
Note: Sierra Preschool is not affiliated with Parkside Church, but located in the same building
