Our preschool is an exciting, Christian-based preschool education for children 3-5 years old. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child to grow and expand their world. Using the “Early Learning and Development Standards” curriculum from the Ohio Department of Education, we strive to create a strong foundation that guides your child towards healthy relationships and a love for learning.

Our meaningful curriculum is carefully aligned with state standards and designed with appropriate learning centers and hands-on motivational activities that build important foundations for future skills. Your child will experience development of their whole self—fostered by social, physical, emotional, academic, and spiritual growth within a Christian atmosphere. We believe you’ll find our preschool to be a happy place in which children can learn and explore at their own pace.

Our carefully selected, professional staff holds appropriate educational backgrounds, early childhood training, teaching experience, and sensitivity to the needs of young children.

Each wonderful teaching team thoughtfully plans daily objectives to provide numerous opportunities for your child to explore reading, math, language, science, social studies, Christian values, and socialization skills as part of their preschool experience.

As an added bonus, your child will attend a regularly scheduled music class that enhances and further develops these skills as they learn about a wide variety of musical techniques, instruments, songs, and dance.

Curriculum

Under the guidance of qualified and loving Christian teachers, our preschool provides an educational program that considers the developmental needs of young children, emphasizing growth in all areas: physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and spiritual.

Our premier program has a strong reputation among area schools for preparing children for long-term academic and social success. Our curriculum is closely aligned with the Ohio Department of Education’s “Early Learning and Development Standards” that support the development and well-being of young children in the areas of language andliteracy, mathematics, social studies, science, and social/emotional/physical development.

Most importantly, our curriculum allows for individual expression through teacher-directed activities, self-directed discovery, creative art experiences, gross and fine motor activities, music, story time and other group experiences.

Our nurturing program is committed to helping your child grow in his or her awareness of the love of God. We are excited to partner with your family and help guide your child into the joyful learning experiences that lie ahead!

Other special days will be announced in advance as we plan during the school year. You will be notified of any change in the schedule.

To facilitate monthly teacher meetings, occasionally a class may experience a fifteen minute early release or a fifteen minute late arrival time during the months of October through April. Parents will be notified of such changes in class time though the monthly newsletter and posted notices in the lobby. Our preschool will follow many, but not all of the same basic calendar dates as the Reynoldsburg City Schools. If the Reynoldsburg City Schools are closed for bad weather, we will be closed for the day. If the Reynoldsburg City Schools are on a weather delay, we will cancel all morning classes. In the event of a closing other than weather related, you will be notified by phone and/or email.
