Ultimately, we strive to teach our children to live in the light of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and we strive to foster an environment where our children learn to love, share and accept one another.

Our Covina Campus serves students ages 3-5 years old. We regularly review curriculum to maintain the best possible standard of excellence. The current curriculum includes “High Hat” Learning, “Bob Jones” (BJU) and the Bible Curriculum “Bright Beginnings.”
