Our Vision and History
Prince of Peace Pre-School was first awarded accreditation in 1999 by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and proudly maintains this achievement. The Director and Assistant Director are responsible for the school daily, and work with an appointed preschool committee.
Our vision is to achieve the following:
All children have access to a safe and accessible, high quality early childhood education that includes a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
All children have access to knowledgeable and well-trained educators.
All children have access to services that support their health, nutrition, and social emotional well-being in a respectful environment that supports diversity.
All families will have the opportunity to be active participants in their child’s education as respected and reciprocal partners.
On September 10, 1966, the Prince of Peace “Day Nursery” opened as an outreach of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in response to a community need for a quality program for children. The school began small. They planned for ten children and two teachers and in fact had twenty children enrolled their first year. The “Day Nursery” has undergone two name changes over the years. In 1985 the school was recognized as Prince of Peace Nursery School and in 2010 the name became Prince of Peace Pre-School, as it remains today.
