Cullowhee Kids Preschool began the fall of 1995 with one classroom of children meeting twice a week for half a day with Sandy Railsback as the head teacher and director in a room upstairs in the Education Wing of the church.  Each subsequent year, the program expanded to accommodate the growing enrollment. A big leap was made in 2010 with the completion of the church’s building project. The preschool was moved downstairs in the new preschool wing as a state certified preschool program meeting 5 days a week for a full school day.

Over the years with tweaks, improvements and teacher preferences, the teacher developed Christian based curriculum is very rich in activities, resources and learning experiences for the children.  Weekly themes are developed for the year based on seasonal events, local culture, holidays and what is just plain fun.
