Why Work Here?

Awesome team environment where employees care for and respect each other!

Kimber Hills Preschool is an integral ministry of Fremont Community Church. The church was started in 1973 as an outreach effort by Redwood Chapel Community Church in Castro Valley. After meeting for several years at Mission High School, the church purchased its current facility from Kimber Farms and started meeting here in 1979. In January 1980, the church began the preschool with a total of seven students. In 2011 Kimber Hills Preschool was adopted as the school’s new name. In 2020, we will be celebrating 40 years as a growing and vibrant preschool.
