Our School

Walnut Avenue Community Christian Preschool (W.A.C.C.P.) was established in 1976.  It is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a Christian environment in which the child can develop physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually during their formative years.  The school is open to all children between 15 months and 6 years of age, regardless of race, nationality or religious creed.

Your child will work independently and in small groups according to his or her developmental level.  There are learning stations for a broad range of science, music, art, creative drama, motor, pre-math and pre-reading on sequential levels.  Your child will select his work independently at his own pace. In small groups, your child will receive teacher led curriculum activities progressing towards Kindergarten readiness.

We provide a supportive atmosphere that fosters self-confidence and encourages initiative and self-reliance on the part of each child.  Each staff member is personally dedicated to preparing an environment that is conducive to the learning process.  All of our teachers are well educated, with an emphasis on Early Childhood. The average length of our teaching staff is 10 years (see staff bios).  To ensure quality programming that is age appropriate and consistent within each of the classrooms, we have a curriculum director that coordinates all lesson planning.

We provide a unique opportunity to experience the outdoors year round in that we have a large, spacious playground, deep overhang and concrete area, with access to these areas regardless of weather.  Our indoor educational facility includes a comfortable, carefully planned, free flowing environment geared to the developmental needs of young children.
