Preschool & Daycare 

MISSION:  To contribute to the Christian teaching of the home by developing the children's growth spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically.  Valley Christian Academy is a ministry of Tabernacle Baptist Church, and as such, is a Christian ministry to our communities.

PHILOSOPHY:  Valley Christian Academy addresses educational practices from a Christian perspective by, allowing our students the opportunity to begin to understand themselves, as well as the world around them, from a Christian point of view.

Valley Christian Academy is a school with definite, positive Christian standards of conduct, good scholastic planning, a genuine personal interest between faculty, students, and parents or guardian, and is a fine opportunity for development of a strong Christian character.

OBJECTIVES:  The mission of Valley Christian Academy Preschool will be accomplished by the curriculum we teach along with the environment the children are in.

  • To facilitate the objectives we will focus on Christian values and principles using the Bible as our guide.  These will include:
  • Teaching the child that Jesus is God's Son - our Savior
  • Teaching the child to love Jesus
  • Teaching the child that the Bible is God's word to us
  • Teaching the child that the Bible is applicable to every day living
  • Teaching the child to talk to God through prayer
  • Teaching the child that God is the Creator of the world and mankind
  • Teaching the child Bible perspective in each thing they do
  • Assisting the child in developing their creative skills
  • Teaching the child that talking about their faith is a natural expression of the Christian life
  • Teaching the child about the United States and our history
  • Teaching the child to have respect for America and our leaders
