At HCP we use Abeka curriculum, giving our students an excellent education from a Christian perspective. This character-building philosophy comes from a biblical foundation—Proverbs 22:6a, “Train up a child in the way he should go.” 

There’s structure and organization because that helps students know what to expect—and what’s expected of them—but also because 1 Corinthians 14:40 says, “Let all things be done decently and in order.

We believe that children learn best when they feel safe, loved and are having fun!  We work to program special events and fun learning opportunities on a regular basis.

Can my child attend part-time?

HCP is a full-time Preschool (Monday- Friday). Since we follow a planned curriculum, we appreciate our students’ full-time attendance. We are happy to work with parents and be flexible with drop-off and pick-up times.  Children may be dropped off as early as 7:30am or as late as 9 am.

What is the Enrollment cost?

Full-time enrollment, 5 days a week, Aug. – May:

$550 per month. 3 & 4 year old

$575 per month. 2 year old

Registration Fee: $75 ( non- refundable). Multiple children discounts available.

Our Summer program is currently full

What if we aren't Christians?

Heritage Christian Preschool is a state-licensed Preschool and we do not discriminate on the basis of religion or for any other reason. We love children of all faiths. We do teach from the Bible in all of our classes and uphold Jesus as Savior and Lord. However, we certainly do not dictate how each family handles that information at home. 

Are meals provided?

HCP does not provide any meals for children. Each family is required to provide ready-to-eat snacks, lunch, and drinks each day. 

Does HCP have Infant Care?

At this time, HCP only accepts enrollment for 2 years old through 4 years old. But if infant care is a need that you have,we’d like to hear from you as we prayerfully plan and develop the Center.
