Learning Through Play
The educational programs at First Christian Pre-Primary School were created with our children’s needs in mind: to mature and develop in a safe yet stimulating environment. Take a look below to learn more about each program.
All preschool classes meet on their designated days at the following times. Due to limited enrollment, we will accept children on a a first come basis. To reserve a place for your child for the coming school year (September - May),
we encourage you to register in the Spring for the following year.

Speech and Language Services
In addition to our regular classes we are able to provide therapy for speech and language
delayed children, 3-5 years old.
Our speech therapist is available to screen, give assessments, provide an individual plan and therapy once a week. Individual attention is given to each child in the classroom or they are pulled out for individual instruction time
to stimulate language development.
We, the First Christian Pre-Primary School, find purpose in our life together as we offer a quality education at the preschool level in a Christian context. We strive to enlarge and enrich the desire to learn.
Our mission is to be a caring community where each child feels encouraged, cared for, and able to be his/herself. We seek ways to involve the total family and build a true community.
Each child is a unique person with an open-ended future. We at First Christian Pre-Primary make available for the children many possibilities from which they take a what is most meaningful to them. The curriculum goals are open. Some children progress from one development stage to the next more rapidly than others do - hence our goals serve as guides, rather than defining the uniqueness of each child. We strive to enlarge or enrich the desire to learn in each child.
What is important to the children is important to us. We try to listen and be aware of each child's needs, wether it is the excitement of a new baby or the sadness at the loss of a pet. Our underlying consideration is that each child strengthens his/her self-image and that at this Preschool each child feels encouraged, cared for and is able to be his/herself.

All employees of the school will be treated in the same manner.
