Valley Mills Christian Preschool


July 18,2020:  The following is a message from Heather Skaggs, Preschool Director of the weekday Valley Mills Christian Preschool and Academy:

With much prayer and consideration, I have decided with support of the Elders to temporarily hold-off on opening the Preschool in August, due to the daily changing of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the uncertainty of what the public schools will be doing, we feel that we can better prepare, and to reopen the Preschool once we feel it is safe to do so. We will continue to monitor this situation very closely and will be making changes to be a better Preschool when circumstances allow us to re-open. This decision wasn’t easy, but we feel for the safety of staff, students and families, it is in our best interest to delay our opening.

We will periodically be updating you via Facebook and the Valley Mills Christian Church website concerning the reconvening. For those families that have prepaid, we will be refunding your money within the next 7-10 days.
