WHO WE ARE
Located at the end of a long, private lane and backing onto Hagley Museum’s 235 preserved acres, Christ Church Episcopal Preschool feels removed from the hustle of modern life. So much so, that it’s easy to forget that we are in the heart of Wilmington and 141 and I95 are close at hand.
Our parents appreciate the long entrance into campus. It provides a transition to the preschool, and its gentler rhythm. Here, there is room for young children to grow at their speed, there is space for them to explore, and there is time for them to be preschoolers. Here, they are not in a hurry to become kindergartners and elementary students. They are not trying to keep up with older children.
This safe place is made just for them.
We focus on early childhood education exclusively. Each year, we educate and nurture 60-70 preschoolers aged 18 months to 5 years on our campus in Wilmington, DE.
OUR Preschool CAMPUS
Our 22 acre campus is graced with old oaks, maples, and black walnuts. There is a field for chasing bubbles, a slope for winter sledding and hoop rolling, and wooded areas for climbing over logs and playing hide and seek.
A nature trail connects the different spaces. An award-winning outdoor classroom encourages discovery. A garden bursts with ripening lettuce, peas, and herbs the children planted themselves. Two playgrounds offer opportunities to dig in the sand and climb.
Light pours into the classrooms through long banks of windows. Hot lunches are served from our kitchen daily. The rafters in the children’s chapel resonate overhead as the children sing.
Whether you’re looking for your child to have a few hours of socialization each week or you’re looking for an alternative to daycare, we have a solution. We have children who are with us for twelve hours a week and others who are with us for forty or more hours a week.
Being flexible, meeting children where they are, and working with parents are core to who we are. Whatever your issue or constraint, we will work with you to meet your family’s needs for your preschooler.
