General School Mission

MOECA Prep's mission is to provide a safe, academically progressive, spiritually nurturin and enjoyable academic environment for children ages 2-1/2 to 5 years. Your child will be inspired to achieve their full academic, spiritual and social potential. Our unique approach to education will allow your child to successfully transition to kindergarten, fully prepared to excel.

A Typical Day

Your child will be engaged in an odyssey of learning through daily activities that are both teacher-planned and child-initiated. Our daily schedule includes mathematics, reading, phonics, science, social studies, dramatic and creative play, art, music and movement, age-appropriate Christian education and indoor and outdoor physical and recreational activities.

Home-School Connection

At MOECA Prep, our goals are to create an environment in your child is loved, comforted and guided through Christian love while finding an abundance of opportunities to explore, discover and develop the skills necessary to achieve their full potential; to help your child achieve independence, self-discipline and control, social competence and self-knowledge; to create an enthusiasm for learning that will last a lifetime and to assist you in understanding and navigating through the developmental stages of your child.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

At MOECA Prep, we are fully committed to addressing all of your child's needs. Realizing that all children respond differently and may often need assistance with transitions, MOECA Prep welcomes parents and guardians in the classroom. Parents are welcome to volunteer at the Academy. We also offer video and web-cam technology for additional assurance during the transition phase.
