Weekday Preschool

Children are a gift from God. They are His reward. Psalm 127:3

We pray each family is staying safe and healthy. As we begin our new school year masks will be required indoors for all preschoolers, staff and volunteers. 

Registration for the 2021-22 Preschool is open.

Welcome to MCC Preschool

I’m glad that you are exploring our weekday preschool online and ask that you contact me, Chris Conner Preschool Director, at cconner@mcc.church if you have questions that are unanswered. The preschool was started in 1987 and has grown throughout the years. The preschool is part of Montgomery Community Church, an Ohio licensed Preschool program that does not discriminate in accepting children because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. 

OUR PURPOSE

The purpose of the Montgomery Community Church Preschool is to provide a learning environment in a Christian setting. The program encourages the development of each child’s social, intellectual, and physical skills, as well as spiritual growth in order to prepare each child for the formal learning experience. As the children experience different developmentally appropriate activities encompassing the arts, language development, math, science, social studies, pre-reading, writing, music, and Chapel, we believe they will come away from their preschool years self-confident and more creative.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

MCC Preschool philosophy states “We believe that, when exposed to a loving and caring Christian atmosphere, the social and academic development of children will be enhanced.” Children need inter-relationships with people and a variety of new experiences to ready them for the formalized learning that will be expected of them soon. Thank you for visiting Montgomery Community Church Preschool!  

Blessings,       
Chris Conner, Preschool Director

MCC Preschool Staff

The needs of each child are of the utmost importance. The selection of staff is based on their love for children, their Christian commitment, and appropriate educational training and teaching experience. All lead teachers hold a bachelor’s degree and/or master’s degree in education and are chosen because they have expertise in training and caring for young children.

Assistants hold a minimum of a high school diploma, have a love for young children, and have experience working with young children.  All staff members are required to attend 6 hours of professional development each year and Child Abuse Recognition. Several staff members are also trained in CPR, First Aid, and Communicable Disease Recognition. All have background checks required by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

MCC Preschool Curriculum

Through a multi-sensory approach to learning, your preschooler will be exposed to a variety of educational activities in an environment which will encourage a continual interest in learning. With these objectives in mind, we have developed a curriculum which is based on the Ohio Early Learning and Development Standards and The Creative Curriculum for preschool education as well as our own educational philosophy.
