Vision Statement

Churchland Preschool Center consists of a team of professional early childhood educators dedicated to developing minds, nurturing bodies, and encouraging dreams in our young children, so that they may become successful, lifelong learners and leaders.

At Churchland Preschool, we believe:

  • We believe that the early years of life are critical in cognitive, social and emotional development.
  • We believe in the importance of family and its impact on the development of young children.
  • We believe that families and schools must have high expectations of children and must support their efforts and celebrate their achievements.
  • We believe that we have a responsibility for the future success of our young children and that we have an opportunity to enhance their cognitive abilities, physical well being and social adjustment which will ultimately affect their future successes.
