About our Preschool
Established in 1961, Churchland Baptist Preschool & Kindergarten was opened as an outreach ministry of Churchland Baptist Church. The goals of the school were to utilize the educational building in the provision of weekday structured preschool learning experiences for four- and five-year-old children of church members and community families. It is one of the oldest preschools in the area. We are proud to offer an affordable, quality preschool for all children. Churchland Baptist Preschool and Kindergarten is a place where relationships between teachers and students are at the heart of the classroom. Students can thrive in a safe environment where they will feel comfortable among the other children. Our teachers help to nurture and guide children through Christian-based education.
Each program revolves around playful learning with age-appropriate practices. Each week preschoolers visit resource classes such as Chapel, STEAM, Music/ Movement, and Library.
With the guidance of The Virginia Department of Private Education, Learning without tears, we have created a theme-based curriculum that focuses on vocabulary and language skills as well as emotional readiness. All our curricula prepare children for school, regardless of when they start.
All our teachers have over 2 years of experience in working with children and a minimum of a CDA. All staff has completed and passed rigorous background checks that are required by the state. Our teachers receive ongoing training throughout the year to comply with state and licensing standards. Our teachers are certified in CPR and First Aid.
Teachers create personalized lesson plans that are engaged and developmentally
appropriate for their class. Activities are implemented that monitor progress
and adapt to instruction. Our teachers are constantly observing and assessing
children to determine which skills children have mastered and which skills
children are developmentally ready to learn.
