Foothill Christian Preschool
Foothill Christian Preschool is located on the courtyard grounds at Foothill Presbyterian Church. This non-profit preschool is open to all denominations in our community and accepts boys and girls both full and part-time between the ages of 2.9 and 5 years.
In addition to a well-planned Christian curriculum, the school is open from 6:30am to 6:00pm for extended care. Our goal is to nurture the development of listening, communication, cognitive, and fine and gross motor skills and have fun doing it.
Tuition is kept below surrounding market rates thanks to the dedication and donations of loyal supporters.
Foothill Christian Preschool believes in the development of the whole child: spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. We seek to accomplish this through the use of a loving and stimulating
Christian atmosphere in small group settings. Each child discovers at his/her own rate of development. The child's needs will be the guide in the process. They are presented with a variety of age appropriate activities and will make their own choices.
We believe that all children deserve a safe, happy, loving Christian environment in which to learn and thrive. In this belief we offer our respect, protection, attention, and affirmation.
An important goal of ours is developing a positive self-image, which is conducive to learning. We emphasize a view of the child as a unique, worthwhile person in God's eyes, and in the eyes of others.
It is our belief that children learn through play and hands-on experiences. Play in a learning situation is aimed at a specific purpose, such as communication skills, cognitive development, fine and gross motor development, and listening skills. We want the children to learn these skills and to have fun doing so!
Foothill Christian Preschool wants to equip and prayerfully support parents in their endeavor to: "Train up a child in the way he should go so that when he is old he shall not depart from it". Proverbs 22:6 KJV
We believe in hands-on learning. We structure our curriculum to meet the needs of your growing child spiritually, socially, emotionally physically and intellectually. Our curriculum will ensure the growth of the whole child.
