Equipping Kids | Partnering with Families | Building Faith
We are excited to announce that we will reopen our preschool for the 2024–2025 academic year! We are eager to build upon our tradition of high quality programming within a faith-based setting. Our goal is to help children prepare for a successful academic career while building an intentional partnership with families.
For 25 years the Christ Church Preschool was a place where parents and kids felt lifted, nurtured, and supported academically and spiritually. During the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertain of what the future would hold, we made the difficult decision to stop our programming. As we emerged from the pandemic families shared their hope that we would reopen and reestablish this vibrant community. We were thrilled when our Church family embraced this idea and put its full support behind it through our LIFT initiative.
In August 2024 we welcomed Kelly Newton as our Preschool Director. She has more than a decade of experience in early childhood education and a passion to see families thrive! Kelly has begun the process of reestablishing our DCFS license. After many years of serving as a licensed program, we have every reason to believe we will quickly obtain our new license. We cannot officially register students until we receive our stamp of approval from the State of Illinois.
While we move through the licensing process, Kelly and team are working hard to build a place where children ages two through five with flourish! If you would like to receive updates about our progress, when enrollment will open and share a little bit about your family, subscribe here.
