West Chester Nazarene Christian School & Day Care
Well-Rounded Child Development
West Chester Nazarene Christian School is a ministry-based program committed to teaching and nurturing young children. Equal value is placed on all aspects of your child’s growth and development – mental, social, emotional, physical and spiritual. At WCNCS, we seek to provide a healthy, loving environment in which our goal is to help children grow to their fullest potential.
Our program provides each child with age-appropriate skills such as: learning to grow in love for God and others, making sound decisions, creating and strengthening family/community ties, establishing moral and ethical beliefs, strengthening motor development, and developing self-discipline and self-control. The child’s home, church and school experiences are all vital in providing a foundation for life. Recognizing that the home is the primary source of nurture, we are committed to partnering with parents to provide the foundation that will help develop a meaningful, constructive lifestyle – one that includes a daily walk with God.
As stated in our philosophy statement, we are strongly committed to spiritual development. Each child is provided with a basic understanding of the Christian faith through Bible lessons, songs, games and activities. Weekly Chapel is included in our curriculum. Children and staff gather together in worship specifically designed for young children to engage in the Word of God.
WCNCS is a non-profit, incorporated body supervised and amenable to the official body of the West Chester Church of the Nazarene, within whose facilities we are housed. The school is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services – OCDEL and is certified as a private parochial school with the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Our qualified, experienced staff supervise our programs, which are offered for ages 2-4. A morning private school program is also offered 3 to 5 days a week. Our class sizes are small and adhere to state-mandated ratios. All-day care is also available.
Our school is opened year-round, five days per week from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Our holidays and days off coincide with the West Chester Area School District. Personalized tours of the facility are offered and guided by the director, Hillary White, who may be reached at (610) 692-7272 or emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
