WEEKDAY PRESCHOOL

At James River Church, we love God and we love kids. While your kids are at school they will be cared for in the best way possible in a safe, loving and fun environment!  We have a great team of teachers along with an outstanding curriculum that will help prepare kids for Kindergarten. 

From weekly physical education and music to exploring fun crafts, everything is centered around teaching children who God is and how much He loves them.  Kids ministry is a core value of James River Church and we can't wait to share God's love with each child that enters our doors.

James River's Weekday Preschool is currently enrolling ages 2 years – Pre K children for the 2014-2015 school year at both campuses.

Advanced registration and payment is required. There is an annual non-refundable registration fee per child. Parents provide child's lunch, diapers, wipes and change of clothes if necessary. Parents also provide clean sheet and blanket or sleeping bag for nap/rest time every day.
