Your preschool children are in charge of planning a birthday party for Jesus so let's get started!  The preschool angels will handle the invitations, the preschool shepherds will clean and decorate the manger, the preschool wisemen will take care of the presents, and the star will lead us all to a barn in Bethlehem at Christmas where Someone Has a Birthday . . . . . Jesus! Your preschoolers will enjoy acting out the parts, singing the kid-friendly songs and ringing the bells as they celebrate Jesus' birthday with a Christmas party at the manger.

"Our Christmas program was another successful one this year.  Continue writing the 20-minute preschool programs.  They work very well for us and everyone enjoys them immensely."         

Melanie K., Century Baptist Church

"We have used your preschool programs for the past two years.  They have been very well received and much easier to put together than the other ones we have tried.  As a  former full-time church musician (I'm now the pastor), I am extremely appreciative of the age-appropriateness of the music you write for our preschoolers.  Thanks!"
