Train up a child in the way they should go: Even when they are old they will not depart from it.

~Proverbs 22:6

Mission Statement: 

It is the mission of Genesis Preschool & Daycare to create a safe, positive, and Christian learning environment for preschool students within Union County.


We promote care of the whole child by addressing each student’s spiritual, relational, intellectual, emotional and physical growth needs. This is implemented by competent, loving teachers using evidence-based practices.

Program Overview:


​Genesis Preschool has been developed as a mission of Imbler Christian Church. It is located in the new Imbler Christian Church building in downtown Imbler, Oregon.


Genesis Preschool serves families with preschool children ages 3-4 and pre-kindergarten children ages 4-5. The preschool is staffed by a director/head teacher and an assistant teacher. These educators are dedicated to providing education based on Oregon's preschool common core standards with the goal of preparing students to enter the kindergarten classroom with confidence. We promote Christian education, incorporating Biblical lessons and songs into students' daily routines.


Genesis also offers daycare services outside of preschool hours Monday-Friday. Our daycare is staffed by the daycare director and a classroom aid. These educators utilize play equipment, craft materials, and toys to promote safe and imaginative play, enabling students to develop their gross and fine motor skills.

Our academics will be biblically based and the interactions among students, teachers, and families will be founded on a basis of love, forgiveness, and grace. This will aid in fostering a safe and positive learning environment for the students and families enrolled at Genesis Preschool.
