Before & After School Childcare


We provide an environment of love and security for the children in our preschool programs. Our caring, Christian teachers and staff help children grow spiritually, physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We pray that the family experience you and your child enjoy at Messiah brings you closer to one another and to Jesus. We would be thrilled to welcome you to our Messiah family!
