Our Philosophy

Sandia Presbyterian Preschool is a Christian education center committed to providing faith-based developmentally appropriate educational opportunities for the social/emotional, cognitive, language and physical growth of the young child.  We believe that children should be nurtured, respected for their own individuality and encouraged to grow at their own rate.  We embrace every child's individual needs and therefore, provide opportunities in which each child can experience success.  We believe that every child and their family deserve equitable access to appropriate services and supports that acknowledge their uniqueness and enable them to reach their full potential.

We provide an environment which allows educational experiences to take place through "interest areas" that offer opportunities at play, make-believe, interactions with others, experimentation, exploration, manipulation of objects, use of the five sense and hands-on experiences.

We believe that children develop a sense of trust, compassion, and become accountable through observation and personal experience of positive role modeling.  Therefore, we are committed to valuing and embracing all children and their families through our staff's interactions.

Parent Involvement

We believe that timely communication with parents plays a significant role in a successful preschool program.  Therefore, we are diligent as we strive to facilitate an ongoing line of communication with every family.  We provide continuous services and support for the families within the community that are both respectful and responsive to our family's culture, beliefs and abilities.  We will continuously improve services and support by evaluating our current practices and implementing new and improved methods.

We love family involvement. Parents are always welcome in our classroom! Please contact Christy Lutz to schedule a time to share in your child's classroom. 

Weekly Chapel

PRESCHOOL CHAPEL: FAITH BUILDING IS... A non-denominational, age appropriate opportunity for the young children of our preschool to learn the basics of the Christian faith. The children gather every Wednesday morning and will participate in a short, age-appropriate, "faith building" experience through the use of Bible stories, music, prayer, blessings and object lessons. The weekly experience will be prepared and led by a member of Sandia Presbyterian Church's staff and may include clergy, children's ministry staff, and musical talents. Faith building lessons will support the themes and concepts that are being taught throughout our daily curriculum. Parents are always welcome to participate.
