Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Kids First Christian Preschool, we believe that each child was born a unique gift of God and that his or her needs should be met at his or her own developmental level. At Kids First Christian Preschool, we believe that children learn best through play and real hands on experiences, and we seek to create a warm, caring, nurturing, positive, imaginative and explorative environment where relationships between children, families and staff are valued. At Kids First Christian Preschool, we strive to encourage each child to inherit important "life skills" in the areas of social and emotional development such as kindness, compassion, forgiveness and love that will enhance and benefit their elementary school experience."
