Love of Christ Preschool provides; within a Christian framework; a safe, loving, nurturing environment which encourages growth, development and learning at the child’s individual pace. The school recognizes Christ as the source of all truth with each learning experience viewed through His Word. With parental responsibility in mind, our program is designed to supplement, rather than replace spiritual training in the home.
Our experienced, caring staff design lessons to develop reading, writing and math readiness; motor skills; socialization; and emotional growth. This is accomplished by introducing a wide variety of fun-filled, age appropriate activities which include: music and rhythm, arts and crafts using a wide variety of media, story time, games and free play, religious education, special events, snack time and much more.
