At Christ Memorial Christian Preschool we welcome children with all abilities and support them based on their individual needs. Our goal is to help children grow at their own rate, in all areas of development, and to help them make a smooth transition into kindergarten. This is accomplished by providing each child opportunities to interact with their peers in a developmentally appropriate environment that offers a balance of child initiated and teacher directed activities. Using the Creative Curriculum®, the preschool covers all areas of a child’s development, including:
Physical: Fine motor skills – drawing, writing, hand-eye coordination. Gross motor skills – running, jumping, hopping, balancing, climbing, skipping, pedaling and steering a tricycle, throwing, kicking and catching

Cognitive: Math skills – Identification of numbers, One-to-one correspondence, ordinal memory, sequencing, classification, sorting, organization, measuring and time; Colors – likeness and differences, primary & secondary colors; Shapes – Names, perception (likeness and differences), size & shape discrimination, placement in space, classification
Language: Listening, sound discrimination, using words to express thoughts, understanding and following directions, identification of letters, visual perception, memory, ability to ask and answer questions, participating in class discussions
