Teri R. Zimmerman
As the preschool's newest director, I would like to welcome you and your families to KCP. With over thirty years experience in child education, business administration, and financial reporting, I have set my sights on providing the children, teachers, staff members, church members, and preschool board of directors with a quality educational program that stimulates our children's mind, body, and spirit. We have a well-rounded program that focuses on skills through cognitive thinking, physical development, social and emotional interaction, and language enhancement. Our children love the warm and inviting welcome they receive from staff and teachers. They love the wealth of knowledge they receive in the classrooms. They enjoy meeting new friends and creating fond memories that last a life time. We teach our children about God's love, his forgiveness, and character traits that they can cherish and hold on to even into adulthood. Our goal is to bring up Godly children who are prepared for life where every their path may lead. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
