Our Mission

Our Mission at Light of Christ Preschool is "to recognize, respect and develop the uniqueness of each child." Established in 1991, the school's primary mission is to instill a love of learning in each student. Our curriculum skillfully weaves artistic and practical disciplines into everyday academics. Students learn in a developmentally appropriate environment that is academically enriched. Students will learn to work both independently and cooperatively with others.

SPECIAL CHILDREN'S EVENTS

Light of Christ Preschool believes in the value of family participation.  These are some of our once-a-year opportunities to share our Preschool experience with family to create lifetime memories.


FATHER'S DAY BREAKFAST

   A Saturday morning for Dad's and preschoolers to put on their favorite sports team garb, enjoy a little food and fun getting to know the Preschool and other Dads with their kids.  Usually scheduled for the fall.

BREAKFAST WITH BABY JESUS

We gather to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus right before school lets out for Christmas break. There are treats and singing, and of course the baby Jesus!  A special memory for the season.   

 

GRANDPARENTS DAY

   Grandparents love to see their grandchildren flourish in their first school environment.  It is a great chance to have fun and do special activities with other important family members.  We usually gather offsite for this huge morning event during the winter.

MOTHER'S DAY TEA

     Moms organize and run this incredible gathering to dress up (or not) and share some food while our children honor and love their moms with tons of cuteness!  Occurs in the Spring.  


WE WANT TO INSTILL A LOVE A LEARNING WHILE RESPECTING THE UNIQUENESS OF EACH CHILD!
