Preschool and Childcare

Preschool and State Licensed childcare under one roof

Preschool and childcare in the same place is a unique option Emporia Christian School can offer to those looking to give their child a good start. Our preschool and childcare programs are state licensed. Caring, committed, teachers, and staff nurture and challenge the children to become lifelong learners in a Christian environment.

We use a play-based age appropriate approach to help children develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and cognitively in a loving environment. Children engage in meaningful activities exploring a wide variety of open-ended materials both indoors and out. We provide nutritious snacks and meals. Our program incorporates science, social studies, math concepts, and language /pre-reading activities in our circle time and centers.
