Welcome to St. Paul’s Christian Preschool

A large part of school is building relationships with teachers and students….AND parents!

St. Paul’s Christian Preschool offers morning and afternoon classes for children ages 2 through 5 years old. We pride ourselves on our small teacher to student ratios, affording the student’s individual attention while still allowing for proper distance socialization.

We are planning to re-open to in-person student learning in the near future.  We are seeking a Director qualified individual to join our team.

 If you would like more information on our Christian Preschool or  to apply for our Director position,  send your name and email to:   

Our mission at St. Paul’s Christian Preschool is to develop, in partnership with the family, the preschool child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth from a Biblical point of view through a hands-on developmentally appropriate curriculum.

Safety:   We are following the recommended COVID health and safety requirements to protect all children and teachers.   This includes receiving children at the front entrance, temperture checks when arriving along with hand sanitizing,  masks where required, distancing when learning and playing,  and room and equipment sanitizing daily.  Please keep any child showing any signs of illness home for the protection of everyone.

Our goals are to assist children in seeing themselves as being unique children of God. This will allow the children to have feelings of success and the ability to develop their strengths at a pace consistent with his/her God given talents.

Our curriculum is based on Howard Gardener’s Multiple Intelligence Theory and aligns with the Illinois Early Learning Standards. Active learning through themes based on children’s interests and abilities will include Social Skills, Math, Science, Pre-Writing, Pre-Reading, Self Expressive Art, Music, Dramatic Play, Large and Small Motor Skills, Bible Stories and Prayer. We also use Service Oriented Learning in each classroom to help our students and our community at large become better connected.
