“Nationally accredited, locally respected, lovingly child-focused”
Holy Apostles Preschool, founded in 1976, is a state licensed and nationally accredited NAEYC preschool program for children ages three through six. The program is developmental in nature, focusing on the cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth of each child.
As a parent cooperative, family involvement is encouraged and required periodically to enhance the role parents have as the first and most important teachers of their children. In the atmosphere of a Christian community, social events throughout the year provide family members with the opportunity to come together, share ideas, and have fun.
Holy Apostles Preschool is accredited by the National Association of Education for the Young Child (NAEYC) which ensures that the preschool meets and exceeds the standards set forth by the Academy for high-quality early childhood education. Currently, these rigorous standards are achieved by only 6-8% of preschools in the country. The benchmarks for high quality programs include requirements in the areas of teacher training, curriculum, health and safety, physical environment, and relationships with families and the community. The preschool uses The Creative Curriculum which provides the structure for children to learn and grow based on a developmental continuum.
The preschool is staffed by highly qualified early childhood professionals who are also trained in infant and child CPR and pediatric First Aid. Each class is led by a teacher, who is aided by an assistant. Periodically a parent volunteer helps in the classroom which allows us to provide a ratio of one adult to four or five children.
Parents are welcome to observe the program by contacting the director and arranging a time to visit or by stopping by anytime during school hours. Please call the school with any questions about the program or for information about registration.
