Master’s Christian Preschool program is designed to help meet the individual needs and differences of each child through intellectual, emotional, social, moral, spiritual, and physical development. It offers a loving learning environment for children ages 2 to 6. Our preschool is non-denominational, as we do serve children from a variety of denominational preferences. Our purpose is to provide children with a nurturing learning environment, surrounded by God’s love.
The curriculum is designed to foster social, emotional and educational development in a well-rounded educational program based on Christian values. The curriculum is structured with developmentally appropriate activities for each individual age level in accordance with the Illinois Early Learning Standards. Beginning with our Two year old program through our Pre-Kindergarten class we offer experiences that foster growth and skills needed to succeed upon entry to Kindergarten. The curriculum focuses on the development of independence and academic skills through learning centers, structured activities, socialization, cooperative and dramatic play, exploration and problem solving. The activities provided build self confidence and reinforce a strong self esteem. The teachers provide a plethora of activities that encourage the children to explore their environment and gain knowledge from those experiences.
The program is designed for socialization, the building of self-esteem and confidence and the developing of stepping stones to academic skills.
The program offers opportunities for Bible stories, Christian songs, Intergenerational interaction with church groups, gymnastic experiences, cooking activities, visits from the Carol Stream Librarian, Carol Stream Firefighters and presentations from parents with special talents.
We encourage parents to be active participants in our program and offer many different opportunities for them to be engaged with the children.
