St. Paul’s Christian Preschool

With a strong focus on academics, we partner with families to help our children             learn and develop the skills they need for school success, all in a sensory,                        fun, and faith-based setting.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me,and do not hinder them,        for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”                              Matt. 19:14

Our curriculum includes many different themes. Many of our themes include art, science, and social studies related material. In addition, we teach pre-reading and math skills throughout the year. We also include Bible stories from the Pray and Play Bible series.

2018-2019 CLASSES

3-YEAR-OLD CLASS: Tuesday and Thursday, 9:15-11:30 am.  Children must turn 3-years-old prior to September 1, 2015 and mostly potty-trained by the start of school.  In this class we work on taking turns, sharing, lining up, following directions, listening to stories, and many other classroom skills as we learn fun themes and sing and dance in music and movement. We work on colors, shapes, numbers, name recognition, and many other skills in a fun and sensory filled atmosphere! We like to paint and get messy in this class!


4-YEAR-OLD CLASS: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:00-11:30 am.  Children must turn 4-years-old prior to September 1, 2015.  In this class we begin to recognize letters and numbers while also studying different themes from Apples to Space. We begin the year with the numbers 1 to 12 and then move to a letter of the week. The children work on weekly journals and we have thematic art projects. We also try to write class stories and fit in time for music and movement and lots of play!


Our mission is to help parents prepare children for kindergarten in a loving Christian atmosphere. There will be opportunities for everyone to get involved in your child’s preschool education throughout the school year. We have guest readers, field trips, evening programs, and an art show. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to getting to know you!
