preschool

overview

Central Texas Christian School is committed to teaching the whole child — spiritually, physically, socially, intellectually, and emotionally. This commitment is accomplished through Kingdom Education, a program centered on God, His son Jesus, the Bible, and the evidence of God in our world. The success of the Kingdom Education experience depends on the unity of spirit and purpose between the school and its families; therefore, our policy requires that at least one parent of enrolling students be a professing Christian.

Class time is from 8:10 a.m. until 11:40 a.m. Three, and five day morning programs are available. The student-teacher ratio is no more than 12:1 with shared aides. Students do not wear uniforms but are encouraged to wear comfortable play clothes with closed-toe shoes. All Preschool students must be completely potty-trained.
