Stockdale Christian Preschool is designed to meet the needs of each child depending on his level of development and growth. We strive to instill the proper priorities of life, the first being an individual commitment to Jesus Christ.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Stockdale Christian Preschool exists as a ministry of Bakersfield First Assembly. It exists to glorify God by providing a biblically integrated curriculum that meets the spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical needs of each child.
Our preschool is designed for children ages 2 1/2 – 6 years. Specific classes for each age group ensures that activities are appropriate for their developmental needs. Program options include half days or full days. Children can attend Monday—Friday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday.
Our preschool consists of 5 classrooms with 24 children in each classroom. Children are placed in the classrooms according to their birth dates. Our classrooms are large and equipped with age appropriate furniture and toys. Our playground has 3 play yards with climbing toys, swings, slides, bikes, tunnels, a sandbox and outside toys.
In order to help children have a solid start in life, goals are designed to meet their spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and social needs. A well planned program which incorporates all five of these areas is always in progress, with the idea that learning never stops. The schedule includes daily Bible, Phonics, Number-skills, Music, Art, Science, Stories and Play Centers. Weekly the children attend Chapel and participate in a Round Robin.
Our teachers have had the proper college education required by the State of California. All teachers attend a Bible-believing church and have accepted Jesus as their personal Savior.
