Hanford Christian Preschool staff is committed to quality and safety. As part of our team requirements all teachers have the following:
- Childcare Providers Preventative Health and Safety Certification
- Pediatric and Adult CPR, First Aid and AED
- Mandated Reporter Training Certification
- Safety Evacuation Training
- Early Childhood Education Coursework
- Live Scan Criminal Record Clearance
- TB Test and Current MMR Vaccinations
In addition to our daily curriculum, we offer enrichment programs that allow us to utilize the many resources available to us on our Hanford Christian campus. These programs are designed to create a sense of community, foster relationships with our older peers, create a sense of comfort with future teachers in Kindergarten through 8th grade, and allow for more interactive education.
Bilingual Literacy and Art Program
Our Hanford Christian art teacher engages the children in a storybook both in English and Spanish. Page by page the story unfolds in two languages, read by two teachers followed by a one on one art experience with our 6th grade Art Mentors.
Once a week we take a walk to visit our First Grade Reading Buddies. Preschoolers find a quiet place to sit with their first-grade buddy and listen to the new readers master their storytelling skills. What a great way to encourage literacy for both age groups.
Once a month preschool celebrates the spirit of the Christian community at Chapel. It is an opportunity to partake in praise and worship with teachers, families and Hanford Christian Students.
We are blessed to have a Kindergarten Teacher with tunes at her fingertips and Jesus in her heart. She shares her musical skills with us by extending an invitation to join kindergarten in song around the antique piano. Not only is it wholehearted fun but, we get to create a relationship with our future kindergarten teacher and playground friends!
Sometimes we just have to hit the road. At Hanford Christian our personal yellow bus and driver take us to new adventures in learning. We often have amazing destinations but for the kids, it is all about the bus.
