Durham NC PreschoolRose of Sharon Preschool is a ministry open to all children ages 2 to 5 years, serving Durham, Timberlake, Rougemont, Roxboro, Chapel Hill and other surrounding communities.

Our ministry seeks to provide services that meet the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of the children we serve. We offer a safe, nurturing environment for play; kind caregivers; healthy meals and snacks; time for rest and outdoor play; and activities to stimulate development. This program is designed to exercise their bodies and minds through songs, games, movement, memory verses, Bible stories, creative play and crafts.

We also teach the children that they are special creations of a heavenly Father. The preschool program also focuses on the pre-reading and pre-writing skills that will benefit their transition to kindergarten. Please call to make an appointment for a tour of our preschool today.

Message From the Pastor

Durham Christian Preschool“But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” – Luke 18:16 NIV

When Jesus was on this earth teaching, preaching, healing and performing miracles, there would be children interspersed within the crowds. On one occasion, the children were clamoring to be near Jesus. I can imagine some even tugged at His garment or tried to climb into His lap. The disciples were quick to try to dismiss the children. But Jesus called the children to Him and told His disciples to “let the little children come to Me.” He also warned them to “not hinder them” from doing so. Then He states that all of us must come to God with the same child-like faith.

At Rose of Sharon Preschool and Church, we believe that Jesus is still calling children to Himself today. We believe that children should know that God loves them and that Jesus loves them. Our teachers are all church members and are committed to showing Christian love to your children. As Pastor, I am committed to teaching your children about God’s love for them. Our intention is not to try to convert your child, but to lay a foundation in their lives so that, by the time they graduate from the preschool, your children will know that Jesus loves them.

If you do not have a church family, we would like to invite you to attend Rose of Sharon. Our staff is dedicated to reaching all age groups here at our church. Our vision at Rose of Sharon is to be “A Place Where You Can Grow.” As your child grows and matures, our prayer is that the object lessons and the memory verses they have learned will help them come to faith in Jesus. My prayer is that “Jesus Loves Me” becomes more than a song from preschool, and becomes a statement of faith.
