Asbury Raleigh Preschool

A weekday morning Christian preschool staffed with highly qualified teachers.

Asbury Preschool offers a child-centered program with small classes and welcomes all children of any race, creed or culture. Our curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate principles and activities. It includes both age-appropriate and individually-appropriate information so children can freely interact with people and materials.

 

We are a nationally accredited program of the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs (NAEYC) and hold a five-star license with the NC Division of Child Development and Early Education.  Schedule a tour today!

What's the curriculum like?

Educational activities, social experiences and social interaction will be based on a Christian perspective. Our program is designed to encourage language development, discovery learning, social skills, creativity, and the beginning of an understanding that God loves each of us.

 

Child-initiated, child-directed, teacher-supported play is an essential component of classroom practice. The protection and enhancement of a child’s self-esteem are important to us. Discipline, when necessary, will include redirection and a brief explanation. If this proves ineffective, a short time-out will be used.
