PPCA Preschool


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 for K3 and K4 students is a half day program.

      School begins at 7:55 a.m. and dismisses at 11:45 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 11:45 a.m., and older students after school lets out. Crusader Camp is PPCA’s summer care day-long program for students.

      These are separate programs 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 State of Mississippi Certificate of Immunization/Form 121 or a current Certificate of Exemption from Immunization/Form 122 (for medical or religious reasons) as authorized by the State of Mississippi through the Mississippi Department of Health.
      • 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. We also incorporate art, music, and physical activity, as well as story times and Bible truths.

      How do I set up a tour of your preschool?

      Please contact the Admissions Office, by calling (601) 939-6229, option 1.

      Please leave a message with your name, phone number, the age of your child, and if you are interested in K3 or K4.

      Sunny McGehee, the Director of Admissions and Preschool Director, will call you back.

      You may also email: sm******@go****.com 

      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!
