Kind Child Culture

We believe that children learn to be kind, treat others well, and are respectful, giving, and thoughtful when they experience these traits firsthand. For that reason, Kind Child is truly a culture in the entire school and not a curriculum that we teach. Our teachers are actually catalysts of a Kind Child movement. We firmly believe that kindness is contagious, and it begins with well-trained staff who exemplify these traits.

More about Our Preschool

Our highly trained and caring staff take a hands-on approach to learning. We encourage children to be creative, and our Pinnacle and Abeka curriculum allows them to be independent learners.

Lead Teacher

I am the proud mother of 3 boys, as well as a proud Jr. Kindergarten Teacher. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Arkansas State University and I have been working with children for 24 years. I started as a gymnastics coach at age 16, then worked as a social worker, and finally as an Early Childhood educator. I have always had a passion for working with children. I found Faith Preschool Academy 6 years ago when my husband and I moved from Arkansas with my then 2 and 4 year old sons. Faith stood out above all the other schools because of the friendly, professional staff, Christian atmosphere, and curriculum. I was very excited when I received the opportunity to become a teacher at Faith Preschool, where I am able to develop young minds, while growing big hearts for God. While I have worked in different positions over the years, my love for and commitment to the school and the love I have for children has always been strong.

Faith Preschool cares about not only their kids and employees, but also other kids in the community. I can remember getting treats and pick-me-ups throughout the year at Southaven Elementary, even during the pandemic. Ms. Akia, one of the workers there, is fabulous. She works well with kids, at the daycare and the elementary school. She's a team player; she's flexible with the students and teachers and very dependable, willing to help wherever and whenever she is needed. She's an excellent asset to any team.

My children have been in Preschool, Pre K and Junior K here and all of the teachers are wonderful. My kids love this school and they are getting a great education. Ms Venita is wonderful also. I also LOVE the cameras so I can check in on my kids anytime. My kids are safe and happy here and I’d recommend FPA to anyone looking.

Faith Preschool has been such a blessing to my family. The Director and staff are amazing, you are always greeted upon arrival and pick up and the atmosphere is vibrant and inviting. Its very clean and well kept. They have created a place that my child loves going to every day. The classrooms and daily schedules are structured (which my 4yo desperately needs). He has learned so much while attending, this isn’t a daycare it is a legit preschool.There are cameras in their rooms so that you are able to check in throughout the day as well. So, if you are a parent that needs that confirmation that your child is having a great day-just log in and take a look! Communication is great from staff to parents. Parents, if you are reading these reviews looking for confirmation for your child to it is! Do it! You and your children will be so very pleased!

Faith Pre-School has been a saving grace for me and my family. My son (4 years old) struggles with transitions into new environments and overall behavior and they have been so patient. They have helped him get it right with each day. He is so excited to attend everyday and as his mother I am always left with a sense of security. They call and update me often and the camera in class is also very helpful for me as a hands on parent. Mrs. Laurie and all her TAs are heaven sent! The curriculum is amazing. He comes home daily with new things to say. Coming from a in-Home experience, Faith preschool was the best option for us. They all truly love my son.
