The Weekday Preschool of Kilbourne Park Baptist Church has been serving families in the community since 1941. Believing that preschoolers are God’s special gift, our mission is to help preschoolers develop and grow in a Christian environment, to minister to the needs of families, to be a Christian witness, and to glorify God in all that we do. It is our goal to help preschoolers grow spiritually, physically, socially, mentally, and emotionally. Our objectives are met primarily through the use of the Wee Learn Curriculum, ZooPhonics, Success reading program, hands on math, and daily Bible stories.
Kilbourne Park Baptist Church Preschool is operated under the supervision of the Director, Stephanie Pantoja and the Assistant Director and School Nurse, Bekah Wenning.
Each classroom is staffed with a lead teacher and an assistant teacher, all of whom are highly qualified and have years of experience in the classroom. Continuing education requirements are a priority for all staff members as they are committed to personal and professional growth and development.
We offer classes for 6-week old infants through Kindergarten. Except for infants, children must have reached the appropriate age for their respective classes by September 1st of the year that they enroll. In cases involving newborns, children must be six weeks old and be up to date on their immunizations before enrollment in the program. If enrollment takes place after September 1st, parents must reserve a space for the child by paying all applicable tuition and fees.
