image4 (1)As parents and teachers, we know the early years of childhood are so important in forming a foundation for later development and learning. It is the important introduction to academics in a classroom setting, along with a safe place where they can learn social skills, express their creativity, problem solve and develop emotionally and physically while strengething their own self-image.

At HCCS, our Preschool Program attends to these important areas while providing faith-based learning that celebrates our love for God. Three and four year old students are to be toilet trained by the first day of school.
