Why Start a Church Preschool?

We are not tenants. The enCourage Preschool Success Team is committed to you and your church vision. We want to help you thrive in your community, reach new families through their kids and expand the Kingdom, while creating new revenue streams to further the mission of your church by starting a preschool at your church.

We Start Thriving Preschools in Churches Nationwide

Managing a preschool is hard enough, and launching a brand new center can feel overwhelming. We partner with churches across the U.S. to provide the support they need for launching a thriving preschool from their existing venue.

We understand the unique challenges faced by leaders like you. That’s why we have a simple five-step process. You’ll know exactly what to expect, what’s next and how long it should take.


We learn your story, assess your needs, and match you with the best consultant for your church.

Design a Business Plan

We work closely with your team to create a custom plan that fits our brand with your venue.

Create Feasibility Study

Our experts conduct a full market analysis and provide a facility assessment to meet state requirements.

Launch or Re-Launch

We launch confidently and run the preschool efficiently with excellence.


Have questions? Need help? Just call. We are partners in your success.

Ready to Start Your Preschool?

Answer a brief questionnaire and we can assess how to best engage with your church. We'll connect you with your enCourage Preschools Regional Director to get the conversation started.
