We recognize the importance of education during the early childhood years. Our Pre-K3 and 4K programs are designed to provide a Christian environment which fosters the spiritual, mental, emotional, social, and physical growth of your child. Westside Christian Preschool prepares children for success in kindergarten and beyond.
“It is a blessing and privilege to share God’s Word and engaging learning experiences to foster all areas of development in the youngest students enrolled at Westside.”
– Ann Krentz, Preschool Director

Westside Christian School exists to prepare students for academic success and lives of Christian service through a curriculum and total school program founded on the Word of God.
Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV), “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Our school responds to his command by educating children and their families in the following areas:
- Academic success (offering a high-quality, Christ-centered curriculum, where students will use their God-given talents to the best of their ability)
