Our family cannot speak highly enough about Gloria Dei Preschool. It's more than a preschool, it's a community and its family. As a mom, you only want the best for your kids. Sending them to Gloria Dei Preschool, I know and trust with my whole heart they are loving every minute of their time. Most importantly, faith and the love of Jesus is being incorporated into their lives, outside of the home. Our kids talk about how much they love the staff, the music, and activities everyday! What comfort we take in knowing how well our kids are loved!

I love the small class sizes and individualized attention my kids receive at Gloria Dei. My kids talk about all the fun things they learned at school. The teachers do a good balance of play based learning and academic prep for kindergarten. I'm so happy my kids are surrounded by caring teachers at Gloria Dei that are helping them grow academically, emotionally and spiritually.

Gloria dei has been such a blessing in our children’s lives. The staff treats each child so lovingly and they make learning SO fun! I feel they have helped my children become more than prepared for kindergarten all while helping them to build life long skills such as joyfulness, kindness, faithfulness, and self control. Our friendships we have built with staff and students alike will last a lifetime.
~Heidi D.

We love Gloria Dei Preschool! Year after year the caring staff has instilled the love of God and the excitement of learning into our children. They have treated all of our children like their own and we could not be more grateful for an awesome preschool for our children to attend.
