Journey Preschool

Journey Preschool has been a ministry of the First Methodist Church in Harlingen for over 30 years. Our mission is to provide excellent childcare and education in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment.

We encourage learning through play while a child's feeling of self-worth and regard for others is placed above achievement. Classes are offered for Infants & children ages 18 months to 4 years of age. JPS prides itself on being able to provide small classroom sizes in a cozy and secure school setting. We would love to give you a tour and or answer any questions you have -- please contact us!
