Preschool Mission Statement

DCPC's weekday school is responsible to and administered by the Christian Education committee through the Preschool committee. The school's purpose is to meet the emotional, social, physical, intellectual, and spiritual needs of the early childhood years.

Each child will be helped to grow as a whole person and to develop his or her own unique talents and abilities in a child-centered environment. Learning takes place within the context of the Christian community, guided by loving adults who are willing to share their own faith in ways that are meaningful to young children.

Click HERE for a form to link your Harris-Teeter VIC card to our preschool. All you need to do is print off the form, fill it out and return it to the church office. HT will give a portion of sales to our Preschool.  Previous funds have been used for playground improvements and Preschool supplies. You must complete a new form each Fall, and you may be linked to more than one school.

Preschool Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on how children learn, rather than on what they should know. The preschool classes at DCPC strive to be developmentally appropriate for eighteen months to five years. 

Children in each age group have planned activities appropriate for their age, and are guided by teachers with experience in the classroom. Many of our teachers have degrees in education and all teachers have completed early childhood education in-service training. Our Preschool staff is knowledgeable on the latest child development research.
