"As a father of 3 daughters, it’s always reassuring to know that when you drop your child off at school, they are truly cared for! Not only has BMK been there academically and spiritually for two of my three daughters, but they treated them as one of their own. When asked, “where should I send my child to prepare them for school and life?”, I am quick to respond, BMK because they care, teach and have Christian values! I believe because of their “starting blocks and curriculum”, my middle child is attending USM Nursing Program and my youngest is friends to everyone and has a great self-esteem. Thank you BMK for preparing our future leaders of tomorrow!"
"Thanks to BMK, we have been confident in sending both our children to a great school that provides a learning experience rooted in Christian beliefs. The facility and staff are second to none and both children loved going to school every day."
"When you send your children to BMK it is like sending them to be taught and nurtured by close friends or family. They are genuinely cared for and more than prepared for their next step in education. We couldn’t have hoped for a better experience."
BMK has been such a sweet blessing to our family. Each one of our three children were poured into from this school. There is something special about knowing that these teachers meet their spiritual needs and will continue to point them to the cross daily. We can say BMK help lay their foundation in their spiritual growth and helped prepare them academically for the next level. We love BMK.
"What I loved most about BMK is that my boys absolutely loved going to school. I knew that the precious teachers at BMK were greeting them with a big smile and hug each morning.The staff at BMK radiates the love of Jesus each and every day."

Brandon Methodist Kindergarten Mission
It is the philosophy of the Brandon Methodist Kindergarten that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, exploring, and discovery. Preschool children are creative and receptive: the staff strives to nurture and encourage these qualities in the children who attend our program.
The preschool’s purpose is to provide an atmosphere that encourages social, spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth and development for the child as a whole.
