mission

Our mission is to provide an exceptional early childhood education experience that meets

the individual needs of the child and family in a safe, nurturing and engaging Christian environment. 

With small class sizes, our programs build character, confidence, respect, 

and a life-long love of learning at an affordable cost.


philosophy

The staff strives to provide positive opportunities to engage children to grow

physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually

so that they have confidence in themselves and their abilities. 

Our licensed staff of thirty-one and small class sizes provide

a warm, supportive environment in which each child is recognized as an individual.

what families are saying


"Woodbury Preschool is a unique, warm, safe environment where my son feels comfortable to develop his social skills. He has learned to love school." -Kim C.

"All three of my children have attended, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with their program! The children are much loved and have a great combination of learning and play." -Sarah

"We were delighted to find a program where we felt comfortable leaving our infant daughter. The caring and attentive staff really know our daughter, and she loves going to 'school' each week like her big sister. There is nothing like the feeling you have as a parent when you drop your child off and know she is happy and safe. We would definitely recommend this program to other families if they are lucky enough to get a spot!" -Mom of 3 in Woodbury

"What a wonderful school! Amazing teachers with big hearts! As a Mom, I would recommend this school to anyone with small kids. I know that my kids are safe, learning, and most of all, having fun! My kids are very happy and that gives me great peace of mind as their Mom." –Emilie D.

"After touring 3 other preschools, Woodbury Preschool was a complete no-brainer for us. It provides a great atmosphere, culturally diverse classrooms, genuinely sweet staff, and a comfortable facility.  My child participates in a variety of activities, is exposed to a rich social experiences, and is learning what he needs to prepare for kindergarten. I highly recommend!" -Mother of two boys

"I love the small class sizes and the wonderful care that my children receive. Having one teacher for 10 kids (or less) is amazing!  It is a positive, safe, and nurturing environment!" -Mom of two boys

"The programs are comprehensive, progressive, and creative. My son has participated for three years and has grown and learned so much. He has turned into a responsible, curious, inquisitive and respectful little man! My daughter has participated for two years and just loves it! I can’t say enough wonderful things!" -Alice


"I like the opportunities for large motor, outdoor play, and gathering.  The school has excellent curriculum.  The kids learn valuable behavioral skills to use in and outside of the classroom" -Mom of two
