Description: Early childhood education should be developmentally appropriate and include opportunities for exploration and discovery. Our students will be part of a nurturing environment that will include a balance of individual, small group and large group activities. Our curriculum uses themes to integrate the various areas of language and literacy, math, science, social studies, art and music. Our hands-on learning will foster social/emotional, physical and intellectual growth. Our highly qualified staff understands that students develop at different rates and therefore will nurture and grow the skills that your child will need for their future academic journey.
We also believe that children need to know the concept of a God who is loving, kind, patient and wise. While we gladly accept students of all faiths and heritages, it is important that children see and replicate Christian values such as loving one another, showing kindness without judgment, also accepting and understanding of differences in one another, to be peacemakers and to be compassionate. To this end, Peoria Presbyterian Preschool students will participate weekly in a 15 minute “chapel” experience which may include a Bible story and/or a religious song. At the same time, we embrace diversity and we encourage families to share their traditions and special celebrations with our class.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
