Program Overview:

We believe that our Christ-centered faith provides the strongest foundation for preschool education.  Christian education in our preschool begins with the

acknowledgement that all strengths and abilities come as a gift from God’s love. 

Light of Christ preschool uses developmentally and academically appropriate practices in its curriculum to build the foundational skills that your child will

use throughout their educational career.

          This approach uses multi-sensory experiences to encourage a love of learning while building those foundational skills.

                    manipulatives such as puzzles, play dough, lacing, etc.
