HIS KIDS

His Kids Preschool moved from the church basement to its new location in September of 2006. It features two large classrooms, a resource room, director’s office, child size bathrooms, and a supply room. Karen Kile is the current director. State of the art security systems ensure children’s safety, while the bright primary colors and large windows invite learning and excitement.
