Founded in 1960 as a community outreach mission of the church, WPC Preschool offers a nonsectarian program that welcomes children of all abilities, backgrounds, cultures and faiths. We are located in the heart of Westwood and serve families living or working in Westwood and the surrounding neighborhoods. We are open from 7:30am – 5pm, Monday through Friday and enroll children ages 2.5 through 5 years. Children can attend on a full or partial day schedule. We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
At WPC Preschool, we respect children as unique, capable individuals with their own needs, skills and interests. Through a thoughtful, dynamic curriculum that responds to the children’s interests and needs, we seek to deepen their understanding of the world around them while building essential life and learning skills.
We have a play-based approach that enables children to move and learn at their own pace and in their own way. Our teachers provide environments in the classroom and yard that invite children to explore, discover and challenge themselves within the safety of a supportive and loving community. Our goal is confident, competent learners who can problem solve independently, build friendships, negotiate conflict and communicate their ideas.
Parents as Partners
Parents are an essential part of our community. We welcome a close partnership with parents to help us form a complete picture of each child. Together, we build a bridge between home and school by helping each child to feel comfortable and safe. It is from this place of trust that children have the confidence to learn and grow physically, emotionally, cognitively and socially.
