Our Christian Preschool is for young three-year olds through Pre-Kindergarten. This is a Preschool and not a daycare facility. Classes meet in a specially designed one-story building to the rear of the church campus. You're welcome to visit our Preschool at any time. Contact the preschool office for more information.

It is the philosophy and firm belief of La Casa de Cristo Christian Preschool that each child is a gift from God and shall be made to feel secure in God's abiding love and care.
Every child is a unique person with special needs and abilities. Our overall goal is to encourage the growth of the "whole child" through social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual development. A daily schedule which includes a balance of teacher-directed and child-directed activities serves to reinforce, enrich and challenge in an environment where each child is respected as an individual.
La Casa de Cristo Christian Preschool admits students of every race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, program and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Registration for 2014-2015 School Year
One week of priority registration for continuing students and church members will take place during the dates of February 3 to February 7. Registration packets will be distributed prior to parent/teacher conferences and completed forms for these students must be turned in to the preschool office during this period. Because you are assured of receiving a spot in a class (although first choice not necessarily guaranteed) your form must also be submitted with the registration fee of $175 to be accepted. (Note: $25 of the fee is applied to state licensing fees.)
Registration is currently ongoing for siblings of current students, siblings of past students, and community members. A $75 non-refundable processing fee, to be applied towards the annual registration fee of $175, must accompany the registration form. These applications will be placed in the appropriate order by date, time, and registration category that they are received and will be processed after those students in the above described Church and Continuing Student categories.
Confirmation of placement in classes will take place in March prior to the beginning of the incoming school year.
If you have any questions, please contact the Preschool Office.

LCdC Preschool has aligned ourselves with the Families Giving Back organization for Kids For Kids, our community outreach program, this year.
Our Quotable Kids
While playing on the playground, the children could hear the wail of a fire engine siren in the distance. One young four year old immediately exclaimed, “We should pray.” Now that is a blessed child!
While reading from the Children’s Bible, story of Adam and Eve in the Garden, teacher says, “Adam and Eve didn’t listen to God. They even tried to hide from Him.” One little student says, “Yep, they hided ‘cuz they needed a spankin’!”
While talking about the pilgrims and their voyage across the ocean, the teacher asked the children if anyone knew the name of the ship they came on, and one little girl raised her hand excitedly to respond, “THE CAULIFLOWER!” That’s as good an answer as most adults would give.
Children say the funniest things.

Discovery Time is a busy hour focusing on monthly thematic topics designed to keep the children engaged in learning while having fun!
