Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Mountview Christian Preschool is a non-profit Christian organization offered as a ministry of Mountview Baptist Church. Our preschool seeks to provide a nurturing environment where all children can develop a healthy, happy, and secure approach to living and learning. The goal of our preschool is to meet a child where his individual needs are and take him, with God's help, as far as he can go. Our qualified teachers and staff are Christians dedicated to working with young children and strive to meet the needs of our students through love, patience, example, and understanding. We believe that parents are the first and primary educators of children spiritually, physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. We believe that the Christian preschool is an extension of the home and
the church and should complement their teachings, cooperating with parents to provide a credible Christian education for the child."
