Westminster Academy Pre-School


As a ministry of the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Brandon, the purpose of this program is to provide a half-day pre-school program that will encourage children by teaching the love of Jesus through words and actions, encouraging respect towards each other and to benefit the parents of the church and community.

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
Proverbs 22:6


We believe each child is an individual created by God and therefore strive to provide an atmosphere of love and warmth that will enhance each child’s spiritual, social, emotional and cognitive needs.  By providing age appropriate learning experiences, we strive to build a positive self-image for preschool age children.
Our program provides a developmentally appropriate theme based curriculum.  Chapel and library and offered weekly with many special activities throughout the year.
