About Our Preschool

Our Mission

Palisades Baptist Church Preschool's mission is to be a preschool that loves God, loves each other and reaches the world.

Nestled in the heart of Pacific Palisades, Palisades Baptist Church Preschool has been serving the Pearl City community for over 30 years. We are dedicated to providing a close-knit, caring environment in which to nurture the physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual development of three and four-year-olds.

Palisades Baptist Church Preschool believes that young children learn best in a nurturing Christ-Centered biblically based learning environment that includes various hands-on activities and experience learning opportunities about themselves, others, and caring for God’s world.

"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6.

Entrance Requirements

Children must be toilet trained and be age three or four by December of the current school year to be accepted into the three or four-year-old class. Immunizations and Form 14 must be completed by the entrance date.

Palisades Baptist Church Preschool is able to enroll up to 35 students total into its two classes--one for three-year-olds and one for four-year-olds. Parents may provide lunch or order through "A Catered Experience."
