Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Wilshire Avenue Christian Preschool is a ministry that provides a service to families of our church and community. It is designed to create a safe environment of love and trust where children can grow spiritually, socially, cognitively, emotionally, and physically.
Developmentally appropriate activities and materials are provided to foster and enhance every child's individual learning process. Through the environment children are encouraged and motivated to explore their unique characteristics, community in which they live, and world around them.
In order to provide quality care we are committed to working and building relationships with the families of our children. Families must be nurtured and respected as we work together to keep each child happy, healthy, and safe.
