Established in 1989, Woodside Christian Preschool (WCP) believes that your child's first educational experience should lay the groundwork for his or her future.  

Our program emphasizes growth in Christian living and preparation for Kindergarten, developing living and learning skills using hands-on age appropriate activities.  WCP targets social, fine motor/creative, physical, and cognitive skills while incorporating Christian values and themes.  

Woodside Christian Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious affiliation, or national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational and admissions policies.  

What to Expect

Woodside Christian Preschool offers programs that provide your child with a unique preschool experience in a loving and caring Christian environment.

Our Philosophy

WCP is a traditional preschool and stresses the importance of creativity and learning through free play, while also providing a solid academic foundation.  In our classrooms children negotiate and work together, gain confidence in their social skills, and interact with their peers in a positive way.

Woodside Ministry

WCP is a ministry of Woodside Church.  As such, the preschool incorporates regular Bible lessons and discussions about our Christian faith into the curriculum.   Preschool families become part of the larger Woodside "family" and are invited to participate in events throughout the year.

Mission Mindfulness

WCP participates in regular mission projects throughout the year. From collecting socks and mittens and making breakfast bags for the homeless to a walkathon benefiting a children's medical charity, WCP preschoolers learn how they can impact their own community in a positive way.

Outside Experiences

WCP exposes our preschoolers to a wide variety of experiences beyond the traditional classroom. Through the school year students are exposed to a variety of special programs including a fire truck visit, an exotic animal show, and a chick hatching program!

All of our classes incorporate monthly religious lessons, Music lessons, and Jump For Joy (a creative gross motor movement class).

WCP's 3-Year-Old program focuses on socialization through play. Children learn to cooperate, share, respect the rights of others, and appreciate the feelings and needs of those around them. Children also have fun learning colors, shapes, numbers, and developing fine motor skills.  Children must be three by September 1 and need to be completely toilet trained to attend the 3 Year Old Program.

WCP Application for Employment


Below are questions people ask the most about our preschool, but if you have more questions don't hesitate to call us at 215-493-5009!

Does my child need to bring food?

If your child is enrolled in one of our extended day programs, you will need to pack a peanut-free lunch.  For all other programs, WCP provides a peanut-free snack and water.  However, if your child has an allergy that prevents him from eating snacks that the school provides, you are welcome to send in a snack daily.  

When is registration?

Registration for the fall school year occurs in January of that particular year.  Currently enrolled families and members of Woodside Church have the opportunity to register before the general public.  We will communicate the registration process in early January of each year.  

If you are new to the area or new to considering preschool for your child, WCP does accept registrations throughout the year for classes that have not filled.  Please call the office at 215-493-5009 for more information.  

What if a class is full?

Classes do often fill during in-house registration, and WCP does its best to handle those situations as fairly as possible.  We ask parents for their first, second, and third choices when registering their children, so even if you don't get your first choice in a class, your child will have a place in one of our offered programs.  

If a class is full, WCP will put your child's name on a wait list.  Classes often shift and change as family plans change.  When a spot opens up in a full class, the office will pull names from the waitlist.  

What is your refund policy?

If in the event you need to withdraw your child from our program for any reason, please notify the Preschool offices in writing.  For the upcoming academic year, all withdrawals made before July 1st receive a full refund of the tuition deposit; those received between July 1st and August 15th receive a refund of half the tuition deposit.  Any withdrawals made AFTER August 15 will not be refunded.  Registration fees are non-refundable.

Does my child need to be potty trained?

YES, children need to be potty trained, with the exception of the On My Own program.
