Our Story

Promoting Community

At Tenth Church, we want to love and serve our neighbors by promoting community in the heart of the city. We hosted a Gingerbread Tea in the fall of 2011, inviting children and caregivers in for coffee, cookies, and a Christmas celebration. We so loved having our neighbors over that we began a bi-weekly playgroup for caregivers and children. It was the joyous start of a joint community and as those little ones grew, parents have asked if we’d consider opening a preschool. We said, “Yes.” We want to continue collaborating together and were pleased to open a new preschool in September 2013.

Our preschool is creative, educational, nurturing, and full of music featuring:

Curriculum that harnesses children’s natural love of music and movement to aid their cognitive and social development

Hands-on exploration and immersion in a literature-rich environment crafted to help each child advance at his own pace towards kindergarten readiness 

Low teacher-child ratio to insure each child is encouraged, known, and celebrated

School calendar that traces out the biblical narrative from creation to redemption 

Community events that help families develop relationships and provide mutual support
