Peoria Christian Preschool Program for 3-yr-olds & 4-yr-olds

Welcome to Peoria Christian School where our loving teachers help these precious young students develop a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning!

PreK students experience a play-based environment designed for them to flourish and grow in confidence while learning through fun centers and active group time. They will experience the benefits of an intentional learning community that promotes academic, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth.

Most importantly, our students develop academically in reading and math readiness for their next level in a caring, Christ-centered environment. Whether students are learning about math or music, they are taught from a Biblical perspective, fostering spiritual truth and character development in an age-appropriate way.
