The Early Childhood Center at Campbell Christian Schools offers both full and part-time programs for children of 4 weeks to 5 years of age. Each program is designed to provide a healthy balance of education, enrichment and play with ample opportunity for spiritual and social growth.
Our approach is based on a unique perspective gained from offering a bright and nurturing Christian environment for young children since 1967. With a rich history and proven expertise, we provide students the necessary skills to succeed in our Elementary School program which averages in the top 20% nationally on standardized achievement tests.
The Early Childhood Center is organized as two primary programs with a combined average enrollment of 145 students.
Transitional – from 2 years of age currently potty training
Our Preschool serves children in these age groups:
Early Preschool – 2 to 3 years
Middle Preschool – 3 to 4 years
Pre-Kindergarten – 4 to 5 years
Parents are encouraged to join the Parent/Teacher Fellowship (PTF) in support of our educational community. The PTF provides opportunities to get involved with the school, to spend time with the ECC director, staff and teachers, to meet with other parents and to keep abreast of the latest news and developments at the school.
