Preschool Philosophy

Preschool is full of “firsts” for both parents and students…the first day of school, the first teacher, and the first time parents entrust their child to someone else for hours each day. At EHCC Preschool, you will find a safe, and nurturing environment, along with Christian teachers who love sharing “firsts” with parents and young children.

We believe that developmentally children learn best through play and therefore offer a program designed to meet the needs of the WHOLE child: spiritual, academic, emotional, physical and social. We recognize that children develop and grow at their own pace and in their own way. Teachers treat each child as an individual and developmental differences are celebrated!

We view our program as an extension of home. We do not take the place of home; rather, we involve families in our programs in an effort to provide children with a sense of connectedness between home and school. There are opportunities for parent involvement in the classroom, on field trips, in fundraising or as a volunteer.

Monthly newsletters are sent home to inform parents what is happening in the school. We communicate closely with parents through formal and informal conferences throughout the year. We also promote an “Open Door” policy with teachers and the Director. Parents are always welcome to come and talk with us any time regarding their child, the program, or any concerns they may have. Parents are considered to be an important part of our program!

In order to provide the highest quality of care, our teachers are well trained through past education, experience, and continuing education classes. In addition, each staff member has undergone background investigations, finger printing with local authorities, and are trained and certified in CPR and First Aid.

We firmly believe we offer the type of program in which we do what is best for children. We love what we do and feel that an experience in any of our EHCC Preschool classes will be a very positive one.

Discrimination Policy

EHCC Preschool does not discriminate by race, religion, gender, age, national origin, gender identity, ethnicity, color, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, and/or economic or military status in the inclusion of children in our program. Also, every reasonable effort is made to incorporate children with special needs into our classrooms. Each child is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
