Jersey Weekday Preschool is a non-profit preschool that is operated as a ministry of Jersey Church. Jersey has a longstanding reputation for caring for people and connecting them to Christ. The staff at Jersey Weekday Preschool is committed to that purpose and pours their hearts into their students and their families!
