Started in 2005, this program is designed for children ages 3-5. It enables them to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually in a loving, and safe Christian environment. The preschool is a ministry outreach program for the community which follows the beliefs and the mission of Sidney First.  

Our Mission: 
To enable preschool-aged children to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually in a lovig and safe Christian environment. Knowing that a key factor in the development of the child is their home life, we aim to foster the growth of emotionally healthy families through events, resources and programs which teach the importance of a God-centered home.
 
Our Purpose:
Our goal is to foster the positive physical, mental, and spiritual growth of your child. By incorporating the lessons of Jesus Christ in their everyday school activities, they can learn to incorporate Him in their everyday lives, creating children who value kindness and respect.
 
Advantages of COOL Preschool:
  • We are a State Licensed Program.
  • We limit enrollment to maintain smaller classes to ensure individualized attention.
  • We get to talk freely about Jesus, so the children learn how much they are loved by Him.
  • We encourage child-directed learning and activities, giving your child an opportunity to have input in what and how they learn.
  • We provide family activities and resources to encourage the growth of a healthy family unit through the grace of Jesus Christ.
 
Projects and Lessons:
Our goal is to educate and prepare your child for the next stages of life. In all lessons we encourage the children to implement the traits of "the Fruit of the Spirit" as written in Galatians 5:22-23. We teach the children to treat others and themselves with "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control".
