Christ Church Preschool
Christ Church Preschool began in 1997 as a ministry of Christ Church: an outreach to the greater community.
The vision was to strenghen the relationship of Christ Chruch with the neighbourhood by serving households with a children's program that would ultimately enrich and enhance the lives of families in the community. The Preschool would also strengthen Christ Church’s message of our desire to be a community centre.

The preschool's program was designed not only to provide a safe learning environment for young children, but also to present the opportunity for families in the area and beyond to meet and to welcome new families to the neighbourhood and ultimately to build community by providing a supportive and lasting network for households.

Christ Church Preschool has grown into a strong partner in the care and nurture of children in our wider community every week. The Preschool is not just a tenant in our building, but a part of our ministry. And it is not limited to members of the parish nor has it ever been: enquiries about enrolling your child for our preschool programs are welcome.

Christ Church Preschool’s Mission
is to provide, both within Christ Church and the wider community, a safe, enriching and meaningful play-based environment where children can explore their natural curiosity and are guided into becoming balanced and confident life-long learners.

Christ Church Preschool’s Teaching Philosophy
Christ Church Preschool is committed to educating the whole child according to individual needs. It creates a nurturing environment where children feel safe to explore through play, to take risks, and to make their own personal discoveries about the world. We believe that play is an essential and integral part of all children’s healthy growth, development, and learning. This philosophy is based on the beliefs of the Reggio Emilia approach to learning.
