Elmwood Christian Preschool has taught and nourished some of the smallest members in our community for almost forty years. The goal of Elmwood Christian Preschool is to provide an environment conducive to the optimal spiritual, social, physical, and intellectual development of each child. Each teacher fosters a child-centered, stable environment where children create, explore, play, share, and socialize.
Our programs for three- and four-year olds help young learners build confidence, encourage curiosity, explore our world, and think through relationships. Our active students learn literature, math, science, social studies, and life skills by exploration, discovery, and hands-on experiences. Monthly Christian themes are taught through stories, songs, and daily grace at snack or lunchtime. Modeling caring and kindness toward others is an essential part of the curriculum.
With one-on-one attention and positive reinforcement, children feel successful. Through understanding, respect, and exciting learning opportunities, the children build self-esteem and confidence. Warm, positive relationships with teachers help children develop a sense of trust and a feeling of worth. We incorporate a spirit of cooperation, not competition. All social interactions are viewed as opportunities for learning to care about one another and ourselves. With guidance, children learn to problem solve, become independent, and respect the ideas and feelings of others.
Interested families are encouraged to visit our website www.elmwoodchristianpreschool.org or call 781.237.5806 to schedule a tour with our Director, Susan Weycker.
