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 2013-2014 School Year
The priority period for registration of church members and continuing students has expired and the processing of applications is concluded. We appreciate your loyalty to La Casa!
You will receive a letter confirming your class registration very soon. Please note, class lists and placement of children with teachers will not be formulated until late June. We will contact parents with that information and other details regarding the beginning of the new school year in early August. In the meantime, should you have an address or phone change during the coming months, please notify the Preschool Office.
We still have limited space available in certain classes, so come in and visit.

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.
