Gilwood Church :: Preschool



Gilwood Presbyterian Preschool offers a part day preschool program along with an optional lunch bunch hour Monday through Friday beginning in September, and ending in May. Our total enrollment is sixty-four children, six teachers, and a total of eight classes. We offer small classes with a low student teacher ratio to promote individual growth. Our four-year-old class is offered three, four, and five days a week. A three-year-old class is offered two and three days a week, and a two year-old class two days a week. Music class is held on Wednesdays for the three, four, and five day children. Chapel is also an important part of our week day program offering a children’s sermon, songs, and prayer in the Sanctuary.   
Each child that comes through our door enters a positive environment where he or she is loved, nurtured, and part of our family. Our staff works together to promote growth in physical, social, intellectual, language, emotional, and spiritual development. Positive values, attitudes, self-concept, and self-help skills are taught along with large and small motor skills.
Providing a quality program in a Christian environment is our goal with the philosophy of learning through play. Special visitors to our school provide hands on learning for the children such as a fireman, policeman, pilgrim, Indian, Santa, Dental Hygienist, Easter Bunny, and others. Programs and events are offered during the year to provide fellowship for our families along with a volunteer program for parent involvement. Field trips are offered throughout the year allowing classes to visit in our community, such as the Post Office, Fire Station, Airport, and Library.
Registration for the new school year begins in January. Registration is open to the public beginning the last week of the month. Children registering for the fall must be 2, 3, or 4 on or before August 31 of the current calendar year.
Children attend classes from 9:00am-12:00pm. Our lunch bunch program is offered four days a week from 12:00pm-1:00pm. The Preschool follows the Cabarrus County school calendar for all holiday, school, and weather closings.
