About Us

The Mt. Bethel Preschool is blessed to have a dedicated teaching staff of qualified, loving, Christian individuals who teach Christian principles in the day-to-day activities of the classroom. Our children, three years and older, attend organized chapel programs each week where Bible stories are shared and “joyful noises are made unto the Lord.”

Classroom Curriculum

At Mt. Bethel Christian Preschool, we believe that each child is a unique individual who should be allowed to grow and develop using stimulating, child-centered curriculum.

We use a thematic unit box curriculum for our two-, three-, four-, and five-year-old classes. The unit boxes are filled with hands-on activities for use in our center-oriented classrooms. These centers include dramatic play, art, manipulatives, science, cooking, and blocks. We provide age-appropriate learning activities in pre-reading and pre-math.

To enhance the classroom curriculum, we have regular visits from various resource people in our area. We plan monthly in-house activities or field trips for our three-year-old, four-year-old, and five-year-old students. Each week the classes visit our music teacher, spanish teacher and creative movement teacher for added enrichment.

Parent involvement is an integral part of the overall success of our program. From class parties, special activities, story time, even “computer Moms and Dads,” we welcome parents to participate.


Parents’ Club

Our active Parents’ Club hosts fundraising and social events during the year to benefit the children and the preschool.  Your wonderful gifts and talents can be shared with our children in a variety of ways.  In the past, Parents’ Club activities have included a Fall Festival, a Birthday Party for Jesus, Field Day, Donuts with the Ones You Love, and a Book Fair.  Any level of involvement is always welcome.
