ABC Christian Preschool
We are pleased that you are interested in ABC Christian Preschool. We have tailored a Christian program that will meet the needs of your preschool child. Following is some basic information to help you understand the type of environment your child would find should you decide to enroll him or her in our program.
Our preschool is in a Christian facility, sponsored by Briggs Road Baptist Church. Administration is provided by the church and overall daily operation is provided by the preschool director and teachers.
This center is a privately owned and operated non-profit preschool. The center is licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and approved to operate as a preschool. We have classes for children who are 3 through 5 years of age.
Philosophy & Goals
Our education philosophy is based on the belief that early Christian education provides an essential part of the development and growth of an individual. Therefore, it is our desire to guide and nurture each child by providing learning experiences in the areas of spiritual, social-emotional, physical, cognitive and language development. It is our goal that as an atmosphere of Christian love surrounds children, they will develop attitudes that will enable them to reach full God given potential in each area of development.
Children will be accepted on a first come-first serve basis, upon completion of the application forms and payment of a $50.00 non-refundable enrollment fee. When enrollment is full a waiting list will be established. These persons will be contacted should an opening arise later in the year.
Each child must undergo a physical prior to the opening of school. This form must be on file within 30 days after the child’s first day of school.
Classes are held for:
- 3 year olds - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am-12pm
- 4 & 5 year olds - Monday-Friday from 9am-12pm
Meet the Teachers
We will generally follow a schedule similar to the South-Western City School District or the Columbus City School District. The 2017-2018 school calendar will be closer to the Columbus City School District calendar.
Based on state guidelines and our center’s licensing regulations, we have established the following maximum teacher-to-student ratios per classroom:
- 3 year old preschool classroom - 1:8
- 4 & 5 year old preschool classroom - 1:12
Our center exists as a non-profit organization with tuition and fees established to cover the basic costs of operation. Tuition is broken into (9) payments and is due before the first school day of the month.
- 3 days per week - $175.00 per month
- 5 days per week - $200.00 per month
Our curriculum is designed to take an active approach to learning. We will strive to make learning positive and exciting because we believe this enhances learning experiences. It is our desire to provide a program of the highest quality centered around the love of God.
We hope you will decide ABC Christian Preschool is the place for your child for his or her preschool experience. If you have not toured our facilities yet, we invite you to visit our center soon and to meet our great staff. Upon receipt of the application forms and the enrollment fee, we will be pleased to reserve a space for your child in our preschool. Again, thank you for your interest in our school.
