Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Crescent Avenue Christian Preschool, we strive to provide a safe, clean environment in which a child can grow intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically.
Crescent Avenue Christian Preschool is an extension of the outreach of Crescent Avenue Church of the Nazarene. By providing full day care with a sound educational program, we serve the needs of those families that require such a service.
We believe that the presence and love of Jesus can and should be interwoven within the entire school day.
We offer an enriched program of developmental creative activities, including an extensive Kindergarten Prep Program.
We believe "EVERY CHILD MATTERS" and we welcome children of any race, color, nationality and ethnic origin."
