General Information

Philosophy

We believe in meeting the needs of the whole child: spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical. We recognize that God has made each child unique and believe that each one is a special addition to our preschool.  Curriculum is set up to encourage spiritual growth, hands-on learning, creative experiences and academic readiness. We know that children learn best by actively engaging in their environment, and many of our activities revolve around that concept. We believe in and follow Shiloh Christian School’s declaration of faith which supports biblical principles, spiritual growth, and Christian morals and values within the classroom.

We strive to:

  1. Instill Biblical principles through Bible stories, songs, and Bible verse memorization.
  2. Teach age appropriate academic material and provide hands-on activities that promote cognitive growth.
  3. Encourage appropriate social interaction by sharing, using good manners, and showing respect.
  4. Allow for kinesthetic growth through free play, playground activities, and gym time.
