Valley Baptist Preschool’s program provides up to five days a week of wonderful, Christian based education for 1, 2, 3 and 4-year olds. Our Preschool day runs from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm.
Our program is dedicated to providing a quality program and a supportive ministry to parents in the community. Our teachers plan and implement developmentally appropriate activities to meet the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual needs of children within a loving, Christian environment, where each child can grow spiritually as well as educationally “in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.” (Luke 2:52)
Childhood is a unique and valuable stage in the human life cycle. Our paramount responsibility is to provide care and education in settings that are safe, healthy, nurturing and responsive to each child. We are committed to supporting children’s development and learning; respecting individual differences; and helping children lean to live, play, and work cooperatively. We are also committed to promoting children’s self-awareness, competence, self-worth, resiliency, and physical well-being.
Families are an integral part of our program. A parent survey is used to assess the areas in which families would like to be involved. With our Playground Visit, Back to School Night, Family Picnic, and Fall Harvest Night families attend numerous school functions. Through reading, activities, cooking experiences, crafts and field trips, parents are encouraged to volunteer in their child’s classroom. Parent/Teacher conferences are held twice a year. Families are asked to evaluate the program each year and this feedback is used to make necessary improvements and additions.
