Presby Preschool Mission
Presby Preschool serves three- to five-year-old children and their families in Kosciusko County to promote healthy development and to introduce them to the love of Jesus Christ.
Our highly qualified staff members share Christ’s love with the students through a play-based curriculum that allows exploration, curiosity, and a personal focus on learning.
By their example of compassion and love, and through a Bible-based curriculum we instill a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime.
We base this mission on the words of Jesus, “Your Father in Heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost”. Matthew 18:14
Presby Preschool Philosophy
We believe a preschool should provide an exciting program of enrichment for the total child. We are dedicated to facilitating the growth and development of young children in a safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate environment. The program is designed to encourage each child’s growth in the following areas by:
Spiritual – Introducing, teaching and modeling Biblical concepts, morals and values in the classroom and in all activities and programs, and helping each child learn to know and love Jesus Christ.
Social – Giving the child opportunities to develop respect for themselves and others, and by encouraging appropriate interactions and friendships with their classmates and teachers.
Emotional – Providing experiences that will encourage an awareness of their own emotions and the ability to express and manage their emotions while also responding appropriately to others’ emotions so that they grow in independence and responsibility, and develop healthy interpersonal relationships.
Physical – Offering daily physical play time outdoors and providing numerous activities to develop healthy bodies through coordination, muscle strengthening and an awareness of their bodies.
Cognitive – Engaging children in activities that challenge their thinking and stimulate their curiosity, leading to an excitement for learning about the world around them and the learning skills that will prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.
