The philosophy of Peace Christian Preschool is described in our motto,
"To play, to learn, to grow in the love of Jesus Christ." Peace Christian
Preschool provides supervised learning, play, and social opportunities with a
Christian emphasis, for pre-kindergarten children. As a developmental preschool,
we recognize that children share common characteristics as they grow physically,
intellectually, socially and spiritually. Each child is unique, expressing these
characteristics on an individual time schedule. Our structure and activities
respect this diversity. Activities, while teacher-planned, are child-initiated
and demonstrate our belief that preschool children learn best through play.
Preschool includes a mixture of large-group, small-group and individual activities,
as well as vigorous and quiet activities, indoors and outdoors. Our curriculum
includes daily devotions, language arts, social experiences, color awareness,
number recognition, reading readiness, and arts and crafts, balanced by a variety
of play activities.
The school is Christian and is covered by insurance required by Virginia
law. Commonwealth law also requires written parental permission for children to
attend the school. All three- and four-year-old children are welcome, regardless of
gender, race, creed, color or national origin. Children must be three years old
by December 31 of the year for which they are enrolling. Children who turn three
between January 1 and April 30 of the school year may enroll on January 1, if space
is available. Children registering for the 4 day program for the upcoming school
year must turn four years old by September 30 of that year. Enrollment is limited to
sixteen children per class. Children must
be potty trained. Policy for Peace Christian Preschool is established by a five-person
Board of Directors who serve voluntarily.
In addition to proper immunization, the Commonwealth of Virginia requires parents to
provide a certified birth certificate and information stating which school(s) and/or
daycare(s), if any, children have attended previously.
We hope the information on this web site answers your questions about our preschool and that
you will use this information to tell your friends and neighbors about the school.
We ask your continued prayers and support.
