History of GT Preschool & Academy

Since 2005, Glad Tidings has been providing education & child-care to families in West Orange County. The growth of the children's emotional, physical, relational & cognitive development come first and foremost.

In 2014, GT Preschool expanded to Kindergarten in continuing with the overall vision of Glad Tidings to educate from the cradle to college. In 2016, we are planning on expanding our Main Campus site to 2nd grade.

Our Mission

Glad Tidings Pre-School is an outgrowth of the vision of Glad Tidings Church; connecting people to God, to one another, to the marketplace, and to the world.  It shall serve the purpose of providing a Christ-centered environment for the little ones in its care.

Our aim is to provide a safe, caring environment for children to grow in their spiritual, relational & educational foundation to prepare them for their life as adults.
— Barbara Waters, GT Preschool Director (Main Campus)


  • Our goal is to provide a loving, caring, atmosphere where mothers and fathers can feel comfortable and assured leaving their children in our care. 
  • We seek to reach this goal by hiring competent, kind professionals who will teach and treat the children in attendance as if they were their own.


  • We keep our atmosphere friendly and warm with our eclectic group of teachers who meet the children's needs in their own way.
  • They care for their students and their families and devote themselves to their profession. 
  • We are blessed with the staff we have and are thankful for their committed spirit.
