Our Philosophy Statement
Community Christian Preschool (CCPS) provides an atmosphere of love and acceptance where every child can develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. CCPS offers a developmentally appropriate environment, enriching the lives of children of all races, religious beliefs, national heritages, and various levels of learning abilities. Our goal is to extend the influence and benefit of Christian beliefs and embrace each child and family as an important and unique. Our staff balance teacher directed learning activities with child-led choices, allowing the children to explore their own interests and develop new passions.
Open, honest, and positive communication with families allow for our children to blossom and grow. We acknowledge that our families are the children's first and most important teachers. CCPS include families in every aspect of their child's experiences. We view ourselves as partners with the families to meet each child's early childhood educational needs. CCPS offers many chances for families to be engaged in our programs, from volunteering in the classrooms to student performances. Communication is key to our students' success. Our school is always open to parents.
Each classroom displays families' pictures to help strengthen the home and school connections. CCPS embraces the variety of cultures, nationalities, languages, and family dynamics that our students have at home. Classrooms have toys, posters, art supplies, and books that represent a variety of people and cultures. Our curriculum, Frog Street Press, incorporates English, Spanish, and sign language into every lesson. Frog Street Press includes stories, songs, and customs from different cultures. We invite families and community members into our school to share information about their heritages and aspects of the culture.
Here at Community Christian Preschool, we hope to start the path of life long learning in our students. We are honored to help children blossom, watch them grow, and be part of their journey.
