Harvest Preschool

Harvest Preschool operates as a ministry of Harvest Community Church.  Our purpose is to support your family by providing a safe, loving and Christ-centered learning environment where your child is valued as a wonderful creation of God.  In partnership with parents, our goal is helping children to know they are loved by God and that they can know, love, worship, follow and serve Him.  We provide experiences that will develop a love of learning, creativity, character and social development, academic readiness and life skills.  Our education involves the whole child.  We strive to help each preschooler develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

  • Janell Trapp, Director and Co-Teacher

    I love preschool students, picture books, paint, scissors, glue and playing Duck, Duck, Goose!

    I am happily married and have raised 2 daughters who are now adults. My college age daughter attended Harvest Preschool the first year it was open. I have been teaching at Harvest Preschool most years since, starting as an assistant teacher and then most recently as Director and Lead Teacher. This year Teacher Debi and I are co-teaching both classes.

    It brings me deep joy when students learn and understand that Jesus loves them and that they can talk to Him. It is a lifelong gift that I love being a part of.

    I love children, their families and seeing children’s joy when discovering anything new. Preschool to me is where sticky and messy exploring takes place. I love our Bible Story time, glitter glue, moon sand and my favorite song is “The Goldfish”!

    I have 12 years of teaching experience in both public and private schools. I am happily married with 3 children and consider it a privilege to help guide and direct our next generation.

  • Jill Wolfe,  Co-Teacher

    Children bring into the world an untamed whirlwind of emotions. That is what I love most about teaching. The joy, the sadness, the silliness all flows freely in a preschool classroom. I have taught preschool for almost 6 years now and I have loved every minute! I am happily married and have a little boy of my own who attended Harvest Preschool for two years.
