Your diligent publisher,
St. Matthews Baptist Preschool has been a part of the ministry of St. Matthews Baptist Church for many years. We love preschoolers and their families. There is a real sense of care and community at this church and school. We strive to meet the needs of the whole child and provide a happy environment in which each child can grow--a great first school experience!
Registration is currently underway. We still have openings available in all classes. Our preschool hours are 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
We welcome visitors ...
Dress Your Kids For Less
It's one of my favorite times of the year. Seasonal consignment sales are right around the corner. Just in time! I know, your kid's pants are too short and they just ripped a hole in one of the three remaining pairs that don't fall 2 inches above the ankle! Mine too! And of course none of that summer stuff from last year even comes close to fitting anymore. Yup, been there.
Relax, stock your closets for less at these upcoming sales. Oh, and most are still accepting ...
Believe it or not Summer is not that far away. Macaroni Kid is making it easier for you to plan some fun activities for your children while school is out. Whether you need a consistent camp to aid in childcare or you simply want to break up the summer routine, Macaroni Kid has plenty of camp ideas for you.
Plan a unique and rewarding experience for your children with a week or just a day of summer camp. The Macaroni Kid Summer Camp Guide offers affordable options to keep your kids stimulated, entertained and exhausted this summer!
Want to list your camp? We'd love to have you! Email Stacy for details.
