Preschool Mission Statement
The mission of Arcadia Christian Preschool is to provide a loving and secure environment where children can
develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually in a Bible-based program run by a dedicated, professional staff.
Arcadia Christian preschool offers a full day program for 2 , 3 or 5 day weekly sessions. A day at preschool includes
learning new skills, art, music, stories and physical activities. Children are encouraged to be creative and imaginative endeavors, but the most important area of experience is their awareness of God's love and order; where attitudes, discipline and emotions develop in a christ-centered atmosphere.
Preschool children are at the stage when everything is fun. As a preschool staff, our job is to provide a climate of
understanding; where they can develop positive self-concepts, while loving to learn and experience new things. A typical day at the preschool begins with free play during the hours of arrival.
A time of music and praise to God takes place before the children's morning classes. In the classroom, children learn bible stories and truth with flannel graph, drama and props. Bible crafts and memory verses, paint, paste, play-dough, crayons, scissors, colors, shapes and sizes are all a part of the preschool experience. There is a prayer, snack, rest and outdoor activities. There is the never-ending learning to share with a friend, and for those going on to Kindergarten, beginning writing, pre-reading skills and number concepts are taught.
The preschool is under the direction of a professional staff that is not only trained in Early Childhood Education, but has a deep faith in and love of God in their hearts.
