Welcome to South Side. Thank you for taking a few minutes to learn a little about who we are and a bit of all that the South Side community offers. We welcome you to come and visit us when the hallways and classrooms bustle with our preschool through second grade children going about the business of learning about God’s beautiful world while discovering and following His will in their lives.

South Side has been described by many as a children’s garden. What a beautiful metaphor. The children in our garden are lovingly enriched, patiently tended, appreciated and pointed always to their heavenly Father. Our staff is eager and equipped to meet each student where he or she is and to grow them into a deep and faith-filled relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Just like gardening can be messy, learning can be too. Together we learn about one another and discover how we can best meet the needs of each unique child. Children spend much of their time at South Side engaged in enriching learning experiences as well as developing their skills in a workshop model with teachers serving as coaches and encouragers. As you peruse through the pictures and pages here, you will find that it is our humble honor to pray daily with and for each child, to partner with parents, and to walk, one hand in your child’s and the other in God’s, as we grow, develop and learn together.

After you visit us virtually, please stop in and tour our campus. We would love to meet you and show you all the wonder of South Side in person!
