Emmanuel is proud to offer one of the leading Preschool programs in Coos County. It is an inclusive place for all children of the community


Emmanuel Episcopal Preschool is excited to announce the opening of our Infant and Toddler Program. We are now serving infants and toddlers up to 2 years old. Hours of care are Monday- Friday from 7:30 am to 5:15 pm.

Emmanuel Episcopal Preschool’s Infant and Toddler Program offers enriching activities for the whole child. Our program is designed to encourage creativity, healthy social development, and a love of learning. Our teachers purposefully designed the classroom to spark a child’s imagination, and encourage creative play. Our curriculum is designed to help children gain the skills they need as early learners and build self-confidence. Our teachers are dedicated and caring individuals that have chosen early childhood education as their career. This brings stability to our program since our teachers have the experience necessary to create a caring and enriching environment for young children.

We offer both part-time and full-time options. For pricing and more information please call Director Hannah Payne at 971-409-3117.
