History
St. Christopher’s Preschool began in September 1961 as a Mother’s Day Out program to provide a ministry to mothers of young children. Since that time the school has grown into a developmental program, which serves 75 children each school day. SCP is a member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools.

Mission

SCP is a mission of St. Christopher's Episcopal Church, whose mission is to provide a preschool of excellent quality at an affordable price to the local community.  Our mission is to live out and show God's love in a safe and inclusive environment.

Purpose 
St. Christopher's Church supports and sponsors the preschool as a mission of the church.   prmotes a positive and loving atmosphere that provides experiences for children to grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually. The school focuses on promoting the children’s independence and self-confidence while teaching them the joys of learning.

Philosophy 
Early childhood is an important stage of development. Children grow and learn in developmental stages. The rate of development varies according to the individual child. In order to help the children develop to their fullest potential, we offer a variety of activities that alternate between active/quiet and child/teacher directed.

Dear Prospective Parent,

Saint Christopher's Preschool's motto, "A Loving Place to Learn" is more than just a motto.  We pride ourselves on our warm and caring community of educators, children, and parents with a goal of creating an atmosphere where children love to learn.  We are a developmental preschool that tailors curriculum to the individual child in preparation for kindergarten.  We believe that children learn through experiences that involve all the senses.  In order to help children develop to their fullest potential we offer a variety of activities that alternate between child directed learning and teacher directed learning.
