The Day School was established in 2006 as a non-profit ministry of New Highland Baptist Church to help meet the demand for preschool education in Hanover County and surrounding areas.   


The Day School is a licensed half-day preschool program offering a developmentally appropriate Christian curriculum for children ages 2 ½ to 5.  Our kindergarten readiness curriculum is center based.   The curriculum  is presented so all children can learn about the love of Jesus Christ. Children say grace before meals, attend chapel, learn about the Christian meaning of holidays and learn to respect the dignity of all persons. 


Additionally our program includes music, arts and crafts, stories and play experiences, the children learn about various monthly themes such as sea life, community helpers, animals, seasons and more.  Outdoor play, games and art activities help the children develop large and small muscle coordination and problem solving skills. During all of our activities we stress cooperation, good manners, self control and independence.


We help children make new friends while developing positive social values, independence, and readiness skills that will help them enter kindergarten with confidence and ease.


All backgrounds and heritage are welcome. The Day School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.


Qualified, dedicated teachers offer their own gifts and talents to our program. They are required to have at least 16 hours of continuing education each year. Classes are limited to 8 to 12 children.
