About the school

Wilson Christian Preschool is a faith-based Colorado State licensed preschool.  Currently, we are accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children ( NAEYC) and hold a Level 4 in the COS SHINES quality improvement rating program. Our preschool provides experiences that enrich each child’s cognitive, social and spiritual development with caring, experienced teachers in a loving, Christian environment.

Our curriculum is designed to capitalize on your child’s natural curiosity and promote development by supplying a rich variety of experiences. Additionally, because preschool is perhaps the first time your child will be separated from you and familiar surroundings, we will help your child develop appropriate ways of relating to new friends and other adults, to share, and to develop self-control and responsibility in a safe, warm, loving, Christ-centered environment.

Our teacher-student ratio is below licensing requirements, so we can personalize the environment and teaching methods to meet the specific needs of your child. Teaching includes a variety of approaches to help support growth in all developmental and content areas.

Your child’s spiritual development will be nurtured through simple prayers, songs, Bible stories, art projects, and weekly “Chapel Time.”

We strive to maintain open communication between home and school, and parents are invited to visit the school at any time.

Playful learning

Because children are naturally creative, we offer ample opportunities to expand their creativity through play, art and music. Playful learning also focuses on language development, number concepts and reading readiness.

Fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination are developed through finger plays, puzzles, manipulative toys and art activities. Sensory discrimination experiences are provided by comparing and contrasting colors, shapes and sizes. Large muscles are developed through activities such as running, skipping, jumping and creative movement.

Teachers use assessments and classroom observations to help create an individual learning plan for your child. Visit the Curriculum page to learn about the learning materials used at Wilson Christian.
