Welcome to Huntington Woods Christian Preschool!
We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about our school.
At Huntington Woods Christian Preschool we strive to model Christian values to our students. We do so by treating everyone the way we would like to be treated, by saying a prayer before our snack, and by celebrating special holidays with our families in church.
We believe children love to learn! Our school offers a supportive, caring, and encouraging environment in which to grow. The children develop key skills through play, art, music, theme-related projects, stories, Spanish, games and much more!
It is the goal of Huntington Woods Christian Preschool that children leave our program with a foundation that enables them to enter into an academic setting with confidence and a strong sense of self-worth.
