Reaching Higher Preschool formerly known as the Sunshine School has updated its facilities and staffing. The preschool was established in 1972 by Community Church. Its purpose is to provide a preschool foundation that helps develop a positive self-image. Our program based on Christian values ensures that children are prepared for kindergarten and beyond.
