Our Classes

Research shows that children learn best through play and as a result, we embed extended blocks of time throughout our schedule for children to engage in meaningful play experiences.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are open from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. We follow the School District of Hillsborough County calendar for the Preschool portion (8;30-11:30) of the day.  If SDHC is closed, then Preschool is not in session. However, we are open for those children enrolled in Extended Care (after 11:30). There are a few exceptions to this and those days are listed on the God’s Garden Preschool calendar.

Nothing better out there!

I could go on and on about how much we LOVE this preschool! My little girl is always so excited to go and runs right up to all the teachers and staff when she gets there (which makes it a little easier on her momma and daddy to leave her) She is learning new things daily and is talking up a storm about all her friends! Can't wait for her brother to join her next year! ♡♡

We have a few spots in the Twos Class available for the 2024-2025 school year. All other classes are full..
