Meadow View Preschool

The Meadow View Christian Preschool exists to assist and encourage parents in nurturing their child's relationship with the Lord as they are learning and developing through their preschool years.

School Philosophy

We believe that as a part of God's plan parents are ultimately responsible for both the education and development of their children (Deut. 6:6-9, Ephes. 6:4). Our purpose is to provide parents with the support needed to aide them in guiding their child spiritually, intellectually, and socially into becoming the person God made them to be. By modeling Christ's love, instilling biblical truths, and challenging each child to learn and explore in age appropriate and fun ways, we will lay a strong foundation on which a responsible, productive and maturing Christian person can be established.

Learning through Play

Our belief is that children learn through their play. There is research that shows the importance of play in the early childhood ages. According to the National Association of Education of Young Children Position Statement it says, "Play is an important vehicle for developing self-regulation as well as promoting language, cognition, and social competence."

At our preschool we set up the environment in a way to promote play. The children are given opportunities to explore materials and expand topics through their play. The teachers plan for a variety of learning experiences as well as intentionally setting up the environment to help build on the skills that the children are currently working on. The teachers refer to the Ohio Early Learning and Development Standards to guide their planning and to know what the children should be working on during their preschool years.

If you would like more information about the importance of play or the Ohio Early Learning and Development Standards please refer to the following websites
