Preschool Information

Early learning is extremely important for your child’s development. A quality preschool, with the Word of God as it’s foundation, can assist in providing a love of learning, and a positive attitude toward school.

Heritage Christian Preschool Philosophy  “Seeking to glorify God through Christ centered teaching, academic excellence and Christian service all in a distinctly loving and nurturing environment.”

It is the philosophy of the Heritage Christian Preschool that children be encouraged to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment.

We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our preschool program provides inclusive settings that recognize children’s varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles. We recognize that parents are the child’s first teachers. Children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is the involvement of family and community. We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help and aesthetic areas for the total development of the child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image.
