Welcome to Early Education!
We know how influential early childhood years are in shaping the hearts and minds of children, which makes selecting preschool and care for your child an extremely important decision. DMC Early Education partners with you to lay a strong spiritual, social-emotional and academic foundation for your child. Our youngest learners bring our mission to life as they excitedly come through our doors each day.

Our talented teachers work from the philosophy that young children learn best by doing. Our goal is to prepare children for Kindergarten, as they become independent, self-confident, inquisitive, and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment. Students develop small and large motor skills through active play, exploration, and hands-on learning. Developmentally appropriate activities such as letter recognition and phonemic awareness foster a literacy rich environment.
Learning is play-based and strengthens social/emotional development. Children are learning how to build healthy relationships, manage their feelings, ask questions, solve problems and feel empathy for others. Large group, small group, and individual activities foster Christ-like behavior towards others. We believe strongly in creating an environment that models Jesus’ love while your child learns. Our students eagerly take to describing themselves as “King’s Kids,” a reminder of the One who made them and loves them. Our comprehensive Bible curriculum encourages children to discover God’s world through stories, worship, and sensory experiences. Our early education classes join together weekly for Chapel.
Impacting the World for Christ
Our hope is to see these children rooted in the love of King Jesus...growing in love for King Jesus and others. We partner as one team with your family to create a community of love and trust as we support your child in growing into the God has created them to be.
