Franklin Christian Church’s Shining Light Preschool connects children and their families to Jesus through nurturing their spiritual, developmental, and educational growth. The preschool’s ultimate goal is to prepare all students for kindergarten by exposing them to the necessary skills needed: sensory development activities, social play, beginning phonics, early writing skills, music, art, and beginning science and math.
Shining Light Preschool has two program options for each school year: Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Students may only enroll in one of these options. We do not offer more than two days a week.
Each program operates from 9:15 am – 2:15 pm on the designated day.
Shining Light follows the Williamson County Schools schedule for holidays and weather-related closings.

Children in the Walker class are expected to use a sippy cup and to be able to eat finger foods. They will take one nap during the school day from 12:00-1:45 pm.

They will need a tri-fold nap mat for nap time, but may also bring a blanket, stuffed animal, or pacifier to help with the adjustment. Parents must send diapers, a sippy cup, lunch, and a nap mat. Shining Light will provide snacks, wipes, and a tote bag for belongings.
