    CPC Preschool provides all children a safe, nurturing and enriching environment. By recognizing different learning styles, our teachers foster a love of learning through a balance of a structured academic program, developmentally appropriate curriculum and creative play. The center provides children of all cultures an opportunity to learn and play together.

  • Teaching Staff

    All of our teachers have a degree in Early Childhood Education, a Child Development Permit or are working towards it. Our associate teachers are actively continuing their education.

    Our center is licensed for 90 children. Preschool classes are divided according to ages and social skills. There is a teacher assigned to each class. Each class size maximum is 12 children to 1 teacher.

  • The preschool daily program involves circle time, devotions, nutritious snack, instruction time, language art activities, music and Bible teaching. The daily experience is rounded out with outdoor play, lunch and rest time. Outdoor play time varies according to age groups and the number of children in attendance at any given time. The afternoon involves a continuation of the morning activities, an afternoon snack, indoor and outdoor activities. There is an occasional assembly, field trip or special event that may alter the daily program.

  • Christian Instruction

    We wish you God’s blessings as we serve your child and your family.

    CPC Preschool includes religion in our daily curriculum. The children will hear Bible stories and do some lesson work daily. We also attend chapel once a week to sing praises to God and thank Him for the blessings in our daily lives.

    All of the staff will reflect their personal relationship with God in their classrooms and be a positive Christian role model for the children in their care. They respect the ministry of Cerritos Presbyterian Church. They will read simple Bible stories, use songs, finger plays, and crafts to help the children understand and experience the lessons in our Bible curriculum.
