A Ministry Dedicated to Learning and Loving
The mission of the Memorial Park Christian Preschool is, with God’s guidance and love, to support the community of children and their families by strengthening the spirit, enriching the mind, and developing the social, educational, and physical potential of each child in a safe, nurturing Christian environment
In 1993 the Outreach Committee of Memorial Park Church had a vision for a Christian preschool which opened its doors in September of that year with 41 students, 4 staff and 3 classes. Today there are 171 students and 22 staff. The preschool’s outreach to the community has been a blessing, as more than 80% of the students come from families who are not members of Memorial Park. The preschool often has a dozen or more children who have limited English proficiency, whose homelands include China, South Korea, Portugal, India, Honduras, Japan, Pakistan and Russia. The staff members share the children’s joy as they learn new words in English and increase their ability to communicate.
From the very beginning until today, Memorial Park Christian Preschool is committed to providing a uniquely Christian perspective to early childhood education. Academics and social skills, though very important, are always taught with a Christian perspective.
