OUR PROGRAM

 
Greece Christian Preschool offers two different age-level programs to give your child the best possible preschool experience, according to their developmental stage and progress, while preparing him/her, to be ready for Kindergarten. Class placement is determined by the child’s age by December 1. As your child progresses, you can be confident that each year will build upon the other.
