Community Presbyterian Preschool

“Let the children come to me,” says our Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 19:14

In this call Community Presbyterian Church recognizes a responsibility of the church to minister to the needs of the youngest members of our community.  The education of children is a joint effort between the home, the church and the school.
We believe that children learn best by interacting with others through play, music, art and an age-appropriate curriculum.  Our commitment is to provide a loving Christian atmosphere for children to begin their early education.
We will strive to promote positive social relationships between students and teachers, a play environment that teaches children through their individual interests and capabilities, and a safe, wholesome preschool experience in preparation for moving on to a more structured learning environment.

Preschool

3 Year Olds

This introductory class will expose the children to age-appropriate learning and social behaviors which will prepare them for life in and outside of the classroom. The children will participate in art, music, physical education, library, and chapel programs; creating independence while learning basic academics.

2 day, 3 day, and 5 day classes

Pre-Kindergarten

4 Year Olds

This class will equip children with the necessary skills for a successful kindergarten year. Comparable to the 3-year-old program, this class will encompass art, music, physical education, library, and chapel. Developmental readiness will allow for additional phonics-based reading, writing, math concepts, and fine motor skills activities.

2 day, 3 day, and 5 day classes

Lunch Bunch

 

This optional Wednesday and Thursday program can be participated in every week or as you choose. it runs from noon until 2:00. The children bring their lunch and join with children from other classes. This is a social play time with some structured activities.

Chapel Service

Students will participate in a weekly chapel service, where we will introduce basic Bible stories and principles. The most profound biblical truth that we can share with our children is the simple truth that “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.” It is not our intention to “teach” religion but to share Jesus’ love with each child that is entrusted to our care. Chapel, which is approximately fifteen minutes includes prayer, a Bible story, worship songs, and birthday blessings. In addition to chapel, teachers may share simple Christian object lessons, Bible storybooks, and blessings in the classroom.

Music

Music is an important part of the preschool experience. Children often learn through rhythm and motion. Once a week our music instructor will lead the children in group music activities. In addition to this group time, music is often used in the background while children play and do arts and crafts. Music plays a part in our physical education program and in Chapel. Little children love to sing and they will get plenty of opportunities to “make a joyful noise” at Community Presbyterian Preschool.

Physical Education

Children will participate in a PE program once a week (unless a special activity is scheduled on that designated day.) Our instructor leads the children in developing their gross motor skills and stresses the importance of exercise.

The class includes music, balls, hula-hoops, tunnels, parachutes, and many other activities to make PE a fun and exciting program. Children should wear tennis shoes on PE days.

Library

Reading is fundamental to a good education. Reading to your children is one of the best ways to nurture them and their imagination. Our desire is to assist you in exposing your children to the joy of reading by providing a library/story time each week. The Librarian comes to the school, shares an interactive story, and allows the childrent to check out a book for the week.
