Westminster Academy Westminster Academy

Westminster Academy provides a pre-school program that encourages children by teaching the love of Jesus through words and actions, encouraging respect towards each other, and to benefit the parents of the church and community.

 

Philosophy

We believe each child is an individual created by God and therefore strive to provide an atmosphere of love and warmth that will enhance each child’s spiritual, social, emotional, and cognitive needs.  By providing age appropriate learning experiences, we strive to build a positive self-image for preschool age children.

Our program provides a developmentally appropriate theme based curriculum. Chapel and library are offered weekly along with many special activities throughout the year.
