Early Childhood

The early years of a child’s life hold so much wonder and creativity. It is amazing how a child’s imagination can use the simplest item to create a fun adventure. At Lancaster County Christian School, the littlest learners grow through hands-on activities that foster a love for learning as they explore their world. Preschool and pre-kindergarten students learn the dynamics of school and grow academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually through the quality programming and loving staff in the Early Childhood program. As God’s love is infused through all facets of the school day, students develop a passion for learning while beginning to recognize that God has an amazing plan for their life. They develop goodness and leadership skills as they learn to interact well within their community. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you on this grand adventure!
