faith in action
Are you a religious preschool?
Great question! Our preschool philosophy is founded on the values and beliefs of the Christian Faith and our teaching and approach to childcare reflect those values. Our activities and curriculum focus on topics such as being kind, loving your neighbor, patience, being honest etc.
The mission of Valley Community Presbyterian Church is to cultivate a community of followers who embody Jesus’ message of grace and love for all people. At Valley Christian Preschool, a ministry of VCPC, our goal is to foster a community of preschool families full of love, grace, and hope – reflecting God’s love and acceptance of every child, parent, and person without exception.
All families of all background are welcome and wanted at Valley Christian Preschool.

Is your staff qualified?
Valley Christian Preschool’s lead teachers are certified and trained in Early Childhood Education. Each staff member is knowledgeable in areas relating to child development, participating each year in professional development to increase our knowledge base.
Are parents required to volunteer?
We are not a Co-op preschool. Our preschool is fully staffed and our parents are NOT required to volunteer in the classroom or on committees. However, parents are always welcome to visit and volunteer in the classroom and we appreciate volunteer involvement both inside and outside of the classroom. Volunteers must attend a Parent Volunteer training with our admin staff and submit a background check with the Central Background Registry prior to volunteering in the classroom.
What Parents are Saying
“A wonderful preschool that nurtures and allows children to learn at their own pace.”
— Amy S
“We have been very happy with VCP! Over the last seven years one or more of our boys have been attending, and we have always felt welcome. The teachers are some of the most caring and compassionate teachers around. My boys made the transition to elementary school with flying colors, and I’m certain its due to what they learned and experienced while at VCP.”
— Molly R.
“A caring, loving environment… the perfect introduction to school for young children! Our son had a great experience and was well prepared for kindergarten.”
