Temperature Check


We have been very fortunate to stay open throughout this pandemic. We appreciate everyone's support and patience while we go through this together. Many of the guidelines suggested by DHEC and DSS for cleaning and disinfecting for Covid19 are things that we already do daily, however, we have upped those efforts recently to be even more proactive in stopping the spread. If you have any questions about our protocols and guidelines, please feel free to call (843) 763-3488.

Parent Testimonials

The teachers at Preschool Academy are wonderful and our child loves going to daycare everyday. Our child is thriving here from the love and compassion received from the staff!

Dr. Alykhan Shariff

This preschool provides a wonderful learning experience. It has a family atmosphere to learn in, have fun in and make lifelong friends in! I went here as a child, spent many summers as a preteen and afterschooler there. Many friends were made and many family members have been lucky enough to attend this school!

Joseph Lenhart

Both of my boys went to this daycare/school. My youngest son had some health challenges and they met them with open arms, facilitated his therapist coming and going when needed. Most of the time the boys would cry when it was time to go! They spend summers there and had the time of their lives! Now, every summer I take my 9 year old niece and she gets so excited! This is a wonderful place, ran by an awesome family.
Wouldn't go anywhere else!!!
