About Us

Mission Statement
Pomerado Christian Preschool exists to provide a quality, developmental, age-appropriate, hands-on learning curriculum in an optimum, safe, nurturing, Christ-centered environment where children have the opportunity to develop a love for Jesus Christ and others and to grow and develop spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.

Philosophy of Education
Within a caring, relaxed, safe, Christ-centered setting, we will provide opportunities for learning and growth through developmental, age-appropriate exploration, discovery, and hands-on experiences.

“These commandments that I give to you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7

We believe that positive expression and attitudes should be used in guiding the behavior of each child, to help him or her become a self-directed individual. We understand that each child is unique and special and have their own rate and style of learning.

“Children are a gift from the Lord.” Psalms 127:3

Therefore, weaknesses and strengths will be viewed individually and objectively. Our program takes these factors into count.

“...encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.” I Thessalonians 5:14

The philosophy of Christian education at Pomerado Christian Preschool is based on the existence of a living God who created all things and has revealed Himself to us through the written Word, the Bible, the living Word, Jesus Christ, and through His creation.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made.” John 1:1-3
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-His eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:20

The education at Pomerado Christian Preschool is God-centered and seeks to view life in every dimension as God sees it. We believe that the knowledge of Jesus Christ is essential for personal development.

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible....all things were created by Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:15-16

Our curriculum has been planned and developed to provide a sound biblical basis for stimulating the different developmental areas of the preschool child.

A day at Pomerado cannot be divided between that which is Christian and that which is secular. We integrate biblical principles and practices into every aspect of the day and use the Bible as our guidebook for everyday living and learning.

The children will be surrounded in a Christ-centered atmosphere of respect, loving appreciation for each other, and the world God created for them. We will strive to create an environment where children will be encouraged to progress in all areas of development and to instill in them the proper priorities of life, first being committed to Jesus Christ.

Our goal is for each child to:
1. Learn more about themselves and develop a positive self-concept.
“For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful.” Psalm 139:13-15
2. Discover and explore the world that God created.
“Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been seen.” John 1:3
3. Learn to respect and get along with others.
“Be kind to one another...” Ephesians 4:32
4. Learn to experiment, explore, and cope with new and unfamiliar situations.
5. Grow spiritually, physically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52
6. View learning as an exciting part of life.
7. Know they are special and that God loves them.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16
8. Learn to love God.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30
9. Develop a life demonstrated by Godly characteristics.
“...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23
10. Desire to please and serve God.
“Whatever you do work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24
Christian Nurture
The preschool is a ministry of Pomerado Christian Church. We feature simple, meaningful Christian nurture as a part of a well-rounded curriculum. Our Bible-based curriculum is interwoven with our "thematic" curriculum and provides experiences through prayer, the monthly Christian nurture thought, Christian music, songs, finger plays, dramatic play, Bible stories, Bible verses, life application stories, discussion of Christian values and principles that are appropriate for young children. Christian holidays are celebrated in ways appropriate for young children.
