Little Christian Preschool has been providing families with quality care and education since 1966. We believe children should have the best possible start in life and help make that a reality by providing curriculum and instruction that centers around God's love and care for us. We create age-appropriate learning opportunities at all levels, which prepare children for their education and life beyond preschool.
The Little Christian Preschool staff is committed to:
- Nurture each child in developing and/or maintaining a positive self-concept as a child of God.
- Offer all children sound educational and social opportunities at an age-appropriate level.
- Use positive reinforcement to create a warm, friendly, and well-managed learning and social environment.
- Promote and stress Christian values through the teaching and management of our program.
- Maintain a loving Christian environment that stimulates educational growth, offers a variety of learning activities, enhances social awareness and responsibility, provides positive individual and group interaction, and promotes self-assurance.
