    We believe families are looking for a Christ-centered preschool where their kids
    develop a passion for learning and establish the skills needed to make a smooth transition into kindergarten. Don’t put off enrolling your child at Selah! Early development propels future development.

    Selah's students learn through exploration of a study, whether it may be the human body, helpers in our community, or the changing seasons. Our studies are school-wide and are determined by the interest/abilities of the students, teachers and upcoming events. Selah staff will lead the students through the following 3 Stages of Learning.
    1. Discovery: Introduction to study, skill or objective… All together!
    2. Exploration: Student led, hands-on experiences of study… With help!
    3. Application: Integrating concept into real life… On their own!

    When you leave your child with us, you know your child will be in a nurturing and engaging Christ-centered community so that you can feel confident and assured that they are getting a quality preschool education.

    Selah is passionate about staying current with the best teaching methodology for young children and has spent extensive time researching curriculum.
    • The Beginner's Bible Curriculum: A great learning resource for the classroom with vibrant art, text, stories and language meant to excite and teach children six and under. Students get introduced to stories and characters of the Bible with this 30-lesson children's curriculum. They will enjoy the animated videos, engaging teaching and fun activities as they discover the truth of God's Word.
    • Zoo Phonics Curriculum: "This is a well-crafted Language Arts program that works for all children." Zoo-phonics, with its cast of child-pleasing Animal Characters, has made a dramatic impact on the beginning reading program at our school. Three, four, and five-year-old students are sounding letters, blending letters, building words and reading. It is delightful to see and hear the students as they internalize the sound-letter relationship in a natural, fun way.

    Benefits of Early Childhood Education

    • Increase in Vocabulary Development and Cognitive Abilities
      Early childhood education helps children increase their vocabulary by familiarizing them with words and their meanings. According to Rand Corporation Research, early education has lasting benefits, showing increases in IQ levels and cognitive abilities (i.e. understanding both concrete and abstract thought).
    • Behavioral and Social Improvements
      Children exposed to early childhood education can be more prepared to interact with adults and other children and understand what is socially appropriate in the home, classroom and public places.
    • Economic Benefits for the Community
      According to Legal Momentum’s Family Initiative and the MIT Workplace Center, early childhood education not only directly benefits the child and immediate family, but the community at large. Children who are educated early are less likely to need special education and more likely to finish high school and go to college. All this adds to the economic vitality of the workforce and the health of the community at large. In fact, studies show that every dollar invested in early education generates $7 in the future.
