Why send my 3-year-old to preschool?

Time with family is precious for little ones. We know that parents are the first and most important teachers a child has! Victory Preschool exists to assist parents in building a foundation for young children using a whole child developmental approach: socially, emotionally, physically, academically, and spiritually. Your child will be cared for by loving teachers who support his/her development with age-appropriate, hands-on activities. Our guided approach to learning allows for both child- and teacher-directed learning through play, as well as a daily routine that develops a child’s focus, self-control, and independence. Finally, your child will learn God’s incredible message of salvation through Jesus, which is the foundation of our entire program.

What is the student-teacher ratio?

Victory will strive for a 1:6 ratio in the 3 year old preschool classroom.

 
 

How does Victory use discipline?

Discipline is a very important part of preschool. As most children are moving away from their infant and toddler years, discipline is key in training them for their elementary years. It is our goal to help your child learn self-control as well as Christian attitudes and behaviors.  Teachers will deal with each child in accordance with Christian love.
 

No teacher will ever use physical discipline with a child. Instead, other means are employed to shape the behavior of the children.  Most frequently, redirection and shifting of attention are used to encourage children to change a disruptive action. Students are also given positive, yet firm, verbal encouragements to change disruptive or inappropriate behavior. If disobedient behavior persists, a “time-out” approach is used to help children reconsider their choices. The teacher will notify the parents of consistent behavioral problems.
 
 

Are snacks or lunch provided?

No. Many children are allergic to certain types of foods or drink. As many children tend to be particular concerning the foods they will eat, we believe it is best for parents to provide snacks and/or lunch for the children. However, if food or drink is ever forgotten, we have extras on hand that will be offered to the child.

Victory Preschool will provide a special treat for every child’s birthday if families are unable to do so. All food will be prepackaged and nut free.
 
 
 

Is before or after care available?

Yes. Victory Preschool offers extended day options. For the school year, students may be enrolled in the morning session (7:00-9:00 a.m.), and/or the afternoon session (12:15-6:00 p.m.). Please contact our center for additional extended day information and current school year rates.
