Light of Christ Preschool offers a Half-day and Full-day 3-year-old developmental/hands-on age appropriate program. Click here for half-day and extended day program options. 

As our philosophy states, it is understood and believed that each child is a unique individual created by God who matures at his/her own rate of development. It is further recognized that children learn primarily through play, utilizing varied and age appropriate “hands-on” experiences.DFE7CEB5 CBD4 4779 8964 8E5F480A14C0 This daily exposure to educational concepts allows learning to happen when the child is ready. So, in planning for the day, the whole child is in focus as he/she is challenged to progress on an individual basis in all areas of growth (spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and emotional). Children hear simple stories from the Bible and teachers make connections back to God’s love for them.  We offer a variety of free choice child-initiated activities as well as teacher-guided activities. As a result, teachable moments occur continually throughout the day.

It is inviting to the child and stimulates investigation, discovery, and interaction with the materials, other children, and adults. It nourishes the development of problem-solving skills, social skills, and being able to think independently. The child's self-esteem and drive for learning are continually encouraged and praised in order that his/her greatest learning ability may be reached. In this way, children feel comfortable, successful, and have an enthusiastic desire to learn.  By the end of the year children are ready to move on to our 4-year-old program.
