NINETY PERCENT OF YOUR CHILD'S BRAIN IS DEVELOPED BY THE AGE OF FIVE

Here at West Valley Christian Preschool, we believe in making the most of those years. Our approach differs from other schools. Many educators have chosen a path to preschool education based on the belief that young children ought to complete worksheets and workbooks to demonstrate their learning. Research has shown, however, that worksheets and workbooks are not only ineffective for preschool education, but they can impede your child’s future learning ability.

A BETTER APPROACH TO EARLY EDUCATION

We at WVC Preschool we're committed to preparing your child for a life of learning, so we have chosen to take a better approach to early education. Instead of instructing your child to complete worksheets, we will intentionally and constructively engage them through a hands-on, play-based philosophy. This approach focuses on activities that children can touch, manipulate, and explore and allows us to help your child build the intellectual foundations they will need to succeed in school, career, everyday life, and most importantly in following Jesus.

KEEPING PARENTS INVOLVED

Additionally, we believe in keeping you informed about what your child is learning so that you can continue to support their development at home. Our teachers send out periodic parent newsletters which explain the learning activities your child is engaging in at school and outline how those activities support their long-term development.
