Preschool

Welcome to the Mount Pisgah Preschool!

Mount Pisgah Christian Preschool students engage with learning in a loving environment through interactive activities and play. With small classroom sizes, teachers prepare Preschool 3s and 4s students for the next stage of learning.
 
Children open a new world of discovery through technology and multi-sensory experiments. Students participate in Chapel, Atelier, music, P.E. and STEAM classes each week.

They grow in faith through chapel programs featuring singing and dancing and Bible curriculum. 

In the Atelier space, our Atelierista, or art specialist, provides a variety of creative experiences through music, clay, light and shadow, loose parts, paint, nature, movement and sound.  

PRESCHOOL: 3s and 4s
