Our History

In the fall of 1965, Binkley 
Kindergarten was establ
ished as an outreach ministry of Olin T. Binkley Baptist Church.  

The school was conceived as a mission to the community with the goal of providing a quality preschool opportunity for children of all backgrounds within the community.  We are excited to be celebrating our 50 year anniversary this year and proud that we still uphold the goals of our founders.

Our Mission

Binkley Preschool believes that all children regardless of ethnic, cultural or socio-economic backgrounds, deserve a high quality preschool experience. At Binkley Preschool, we believe that children should be allowed to be children.  We foster a loving, nurturing, play based environment that is challenging and stimulating, but not frustrating.  Our goal is to give children a solid foundation upon which to build their education.
