growing in faith


Our Mission
  • Create a sticky faith so when our kids leave home they won’t leave their faith behind.
  • Install a love of worshipping God, so that church feels like home for our kids.
  • Build a 5:1 support team for our kids so that five adults are investing into relationship with each child.

Back to Basics Tutoring began in 1992 to provide supplemental academic help to 12 students from our church. Since then, the program has grown to over 125 students from all over Sarasota county.

Back to Basics offers students one hour, one-on-one tutoring sessions that can make a tremendous difference in their achievements at school.

Tutors volunteer to help the students from one hour a week to up to six hours a week.

Our Philosophy

It is the philosophy of the Palms Preschool to welcome families, children and staff of all faiths, creed and ethnic origins to the program. We are committed to offering a safe, caring, and stimulating educational environment. Children have the opportunity to explore and learn by experiencing creative, hands-on age appropriate educational activities presented by nurturing and professional staff. We offer a multi-faceted program where open communication between families and staff is promoted in order to help each child reach their potential and share the gifts that God has given them.
