Program Goals

Christ Church Preschool, a Preschool Promise and 4-star rated Step Up to Quality site, use creative curriculum to build a foundational knowledge and best classroom practices to help every child succeed.

Social/Emotional Development:
Utilize experiences to help children develop the ability to self-regulate emotions and behaviors, establish and sustain positive relationships, and participate cooperatively and constructively in group situations. Implement Conscious Discipline for children to gain healthier skill sets, make connections, improve school culture, and increase academic achievement.

Physical Development:
Provide opportunities for children to move and control their bodies through our Body Management program; to develop fundamental skills in balance, coordination, agility and strength through large muscle activities and to develop small motor skills by encouraging the use of fingers and hands in all types of manipulative activities.

Intellectual Development:
Provide a wide variety of readiness experiences to promote language and cognitive skills. Support early literacy through writing and spoken word. Foster a love for learning through implementation of activities supporting mathematics, science and technology. Provide opportunities for children to gain community and world knowledge. Encourage self-expression through the arts.

Spiritual Development:
Encourage each child’s spiritual and personal relationship with God through our optional Godly Play program and monthly Spirit Day gatherings.
