Pioneer Preschool provides a caring and loving environment which encourages children to develop spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively, in preparation for Kindergarten. We have been guiding and loving these littlest blessings for over 40 years!
GOALS & PURPOSES
The purpose of Pioneer Preschool is to joyfully welcome all children regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, or disability into a Christian environment of caring, loving, and learning. This will be demonstrated by example and teaching that enhances good self-esteem and respect for all people.
The primary goal of Pioneer Preschool is to prepare each child for Kindergarten by encouraging their development through purposeful and intentional experiences which promote our philosophy that children learn best through play, whether teacher directed or child inspired. Children display more confidence, a curiosity about the world around them, and a love for school and learning and enter kindergarten ready for success.
Our Christian emphasis is developed by creating a loving, nurturing, environment that is enhanced by meal time prayer, good role models, and a celebration of the Christian holidays.
HIGHLIGHTS OF PIONEER PRESCHOOL
MUSIC CLASSES – A weekly 30-minute music program is taught by our dedicated music teacher. Musical instruments, rhythm, movement, and songs enhance the classroom music and allow the children to express themselves more freely through their music.
GYM TIME – Children think of our full-sized gymnasium as a great place to run, play with their friends, and let off a little steam every day that they come to school. They receive 30 minutes of gross motor activity each day! In addition, teachers know that this space is utilized to develop the gross motor skills that are age-appropriate, using the balance beam, climbing equipment, parachute, balls, riding toys, and tunnels.
MISSION PROJECTS – Children and families are invited to participate in various mission projects. Some of our favorite ways to share God’s love is through the post-Halloween candy drive, the Thanksgiving food drive, contributions to the USO, and the Christmas Mitten tree.
