Christ Church Episcopal Preschool

Our Mission:

Christ Church Episcopal Preschool educates young children, creates community among school, families, and church, and honors and nurtures children in the Episcopal tradition.

The preschool is a ministry of Christ Church Christiana Hundred.  We welcome children aged two to five in small classes where all are affirmed as children of God and are inspired and encouraged to become their best selves—socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually.  Our teachers are highly qualified and experienced, many having taught young children for more than twenty years.  Specialists in music, physical education, Spanish, and religion serve alonside our classroom teachers in small classes.  Our curriculum is rich in literacy-based experiences and learning through play, taking full advantage of our beautiful 22-acre campus with its fields, woods, playgrounds, a child-friendly nature trail, and an award-winning outdoor classroom.  We explore the outdoors in the mild days of September and in the icy days of January, learning from our environment and enjoying God’s creation. 

We welcome visitors at any time.  If you are interested in learning more about the school, please call to make an appointment to visit, tour the campus, and discuss the school’s program.  We are also happy to put you in touch with a current family who will be more than willing to share its experiences at CCEP with you.   

The admissions process begins in January of each year, so we encourage you to inquire, plan a visit, and make your application early.  Please feel free to call or email for further information.
