About Us

At Christ Church Preschool, we prepare children for Kindergarten.  We do this by educating, developing, and encouraging them to grow academically, socially, and spiritually.  Our dedication to quality education is proven by our Parent Aware rating.  By the time your child completes preschool, they will have the skills they need to be successful in elementary school.


A Typical Day

Learning Centers Time:  Children start their day by learning through play and exploration in our Learning Centers.  During this time children work on:

  • social and emotional development
  • approaches to learning
  • creativity and the arts
  • cognitive development
  • language and literacy
  • physical and motor development

Teachers observe the children during their interactions to assess developmental readiness.

Group Time:  The Teacher gathers the children together for a Bible story, children’s stories, songs, poems, music, calendar, weather, EZ writing, and art.

Snack Time:  Children wash their hands and are offered a healthy snack from two different food groups.  They are encouraged to try new foods, pour their own beverages, use table manners, and clean up after themselves. 

Large Motor Time:  Children complete their day using large motor skills outside in the playground.  Indoor activities are provided when the weather does not allow for outdoor play.

Teaching Staff

Your child will be taught under the caring guidance of a Teacher and an Assistant Teacher/Aide.  Our class ratios are not higher than one staff member per ten children.  Our staff attend continuing education courses throughout the year in order to ensure that they are following the most current best practices for Early Childhood Education. 

Our Christian Emphasis

Christ Church Preschool’s approach is based upon the Bible and the teachings of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We introduce concepts of faith through prayer, Bible stories, holiday celebrations, and our actions. Our staff prays with the children before snack. They also pray for children and families when there is a known need.  The children participate in a Christmas Program, which is enjoyed by parents and families.  The Preschool Staff strives to live out our faith in our daily lives to positively influence the world around us.
