ABOUT US

We are licensed by the state of Ohio and supervised by Parma Heights Baptist Church. We believe our purpose is to help children prepare for kindergarten through a variety of activities and learning experiences.
 
We want each child to become excited about learning and develop a strong self-image, which will help him strive and work to overcome obstacles. Each day offers opportunities for success and growth.
 

TYPICAL DAY

Here is a glimpse of “son” shine as experienced
at this non-profit, self-supporting Christian preschool
for 3 through 5 year olds:
 
Class starts with free play and a craft. After clean-up, we say the Pledge of Allegiance and pray.
 
In Circle Time we choose the day’s special helpers. A story
or singing together helps the children work in a group and learn the self-control of sitting quietly and waiting for a turn to participate.
 
Snack is a favorite time. We provide water to drink and the snack unless a child wants to bring a special treat for birthday or because they have baked at home with Mom. We choose water because it is good for the children and often a “new” beverage to them.
 
After a brief rest on the rug, the class may exercise, go to
the gym, or move into group time with a Bible story or academic lesson.
 
An important part of their learning is an awareness of God – that He created them, loves them, and wants to be a part of their lives. What awesome security to share with a child – that they are uniquely special to God.

ACTIVITY HIGHLIGHTS

OCTOBER FALL FESTIVALS
Parents are invited to share games, snack, and a special feature with their preschooler. We choose to celebrate harvest and God’s goodness in place of Halloween.
 
THANKSGIVING FEASTS
Our Thanksgiving Feasts bring classes together to share
as in the first Thanksgiving where Mother Goose Pilgrims, Peter Panda Indians, Critter Express Turkeys, and Noah’s Ark Pumpkins bring their class contribution to our shared “feast” of chicken soup, biscuits, homemade butter, and pumpkin cookies.
 
CHRISTMAS
Our focus at Christmas is the celebration of Christ’s birth in our lessons and evening choral program for families.
 
OTHER HIGHLIGHTS
Valentine parties, Easter Egg hunts, and Zoo Day. Our year ends with closing programs and picnics. We share snippets of a classroom session, award diplomas, and eat hot dogs and finger foods.
