Our children’s first impressions of school are very important! They should feel nurtured, loved, and experience a positive atmosphere.

Park Place Christian Academy’s Preschool is here to provide that for them. We partner with parents to provide a Christ-centered education: an education with a Higher Purpose.

We focus each day on your child’s spiritual, academic, and social development. We want even our smallest children to learn to love like Jesus, love to learn, and grow in Him each day.

      Is your program half day or full day?

      PPCA’s Preschool is a half day program.

      School begins at 7:55 a.m. and dismisses at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

      Early drop-off is available beginning at 7:15 each day.

      PPCA also has Crusader Care (after-school care) that is available for our preschoolers beginning at 11:30 a.m. This is a separate program with an additional tuition.

      What are the requirements for my child to attend PPCA preschool?

      • All children must be three or four years old by September 1st.
      • All children must have a current Immunization 121 Form.
      • All children must be completely toilet trained.

      What educational program do you use?

      Children learn in a variety of ways, so our teachers use different methods to teach developmentally appropriate concepts and skills. We use A Beka Book Curriculum for academics, as well as hands-on, play-based manipulatives and centers.

      How do I set up a tour of your preschool?

      Please contact Andi Cruthirds, our Admissions Director, at acruthirds@goppca.com  or call (601) 939-6229, option 7. She can also provide cost of tuition and answer other financial questions you may have.


      It would be our joy to love and teach your child each day at PPCA Preschool. I hope you will prayerfully consider PPCA as a good place to start your child’s education. We look forward to meeting you and your little one!
