Preschool Testimonials

This is our first year at Christ Memorial Christian Preschool and we could not feel more blessed to have this amazing school near us. The building and facility is beautiful, the curriculum is great and challenges my child in the best way, and the staff are truly angels! My daughter experienced severe separation anxieties and stress and the school did everything possible to ensure she had a positive and secure experience. Mrs. Rosti, Mrs. Benzing and Mrs. Gallagher have gone above and beyond to show my child compassion, to help build her strength emotionally, and to assist her in feeling safe in her environment. They provided individualized supports for her, as well as the rest of the children, which is incredible. My daughter is thriving because of Christ Memorial Christian Preschool, and we are so grateful for our experience. We have registered our youngest to begin next fall also! I would absolutely recommend Christ Memorial to anyone and everyone looking for a preschool!

“I recommend CMPC Preschool to everyone I know! The program is extremely organized with great communication between staff and parents, there is a focus on play and playful learning, and the staff genuinely seems to love and care for the students.”

Two of my sons have attended Christ Memorial Christian Preschool and have thrived in such a fun, loving, and educational environment. My oldest son who is now in kindergarten misses preschool and enjoys visiting while dropping off his younger brother. I attended CMCP myself 30+ years ago and the values the school instills have remained constant over the years. The teachers and director are friendly, organized, and communicate all upcoming school events in advance, which I greatly appreciate as a working parent. Christ Memorial provides a nice balance of faith, socialization, and age-appropriate activities giving your child a well-rounded educational experience as they prepare for elementary school. We also love the community at the school and value the friendships we’ve made over the years!

Christ Memorial Christian Preschool is an AMAZING place to send little ones. The part-time class schedule has eased my girls into a structured classroom with a regular routine and lots of opportunities for them to make new friends. The teachers are unbelievably awesome and have a real passion for teaching. They are kind, patient and engaging and their teaching styles hold the attention of the children. There is a lot of learning going on through reading books, working on letters and numbers, arts and crafts and play time that is geared to the individual student’s capabilities. Most importantly, all instruction correlates with the teachings from the Bible. Students learn about Jesus through songs, story time and occasional visits from the church’s Pastor. The teachers also provide progress reports twice during the year that are always very informative. I also appreciate the strict security measures they have in place for the drop-offs/pick-ups and the availability of the playground that we take advantage of after school is out. I have complete confidence that the quality time my children spend in Christ Memorial’s preschool program will well-prepare them for kindergarten. My family feels fortunate to have found such a wonderful place to send our children for their first experience in a school!

We have been so impressed with Christ Memorial Christian Preschool from day one! The teachers supported us while we were helping my daughter transition with toilet training. The teachers and director communicate on a regular basis with concerns or positive feedback and even pictures from a special day or event.

The creativity of the staff with the activities is incredible, including amazing sensory tables and crafts that we often turn into keepsakes and decorations for the next year. They do a great job celebrating families including making Mother’s Day very special as well as father’s donut day. I have enjoyed the opportunity to come in for parent readings to share stories we love at home with my daughter’s class.

The special events including pet day, fun day, and field trips in addition to this year’s trike-a -thon have been so much fun to be a part of with my daughter and her classmates. I can’t say enough positive things about our relationships with teachers and staff. We love that the director is very hands on and approachable. My youngest will be attending next year and loves to say hi to Mrs. Gallagher and show off her outfit or toys of the day! Thanks for giving us such an awesome preschool experience!
