Bemis Farms Preschool and Childcare is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Therefore, we provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children six weeks through twelve years of age. Bemis Farms offers children unique opportunities to interact with nature. The children have opportunities to plant, nurture, water, and watch a variety of plant life as it grows.
In the early 90’s Priscilla King, a local retired schoolteacher, found herself in the position of looking for quality care for her granddaughter. Unable to find what she was looking for she decided to start her own childcare in her home. In 1994, she bought the farm, Bemis Farms that is, further establishing her roots in the Saline community. It was a small home on 18 acres of farmland. A couple additions and renovations later Bemis Farms has gone from a small in-home childcare and flourished into a multi-site organization without losing that home-town feeling. We expanded our main site in 2003 by adding care in the Lincoln Consolidated School District.
