St. John Christian Preschool opened in the fall of 1985 as a service to the families and children of our community. Its goal is to provide a successful first school experience for your child in a loving, Christian atmosphere. Our experienced staff directs a curriculum based on love, sensitivity, solid theory and research, and the developmental needs of young children.
Our preschool serves the Dublin, Hilliard, Plain City, and surrounding Columbus areas. We are located near the corner of Avery Road and Rings Road.
St. John Christian Preschool exists to help families carry out God’s command to educate His children and prepare them for a Christ-centered life of learning and service.
At St. John Christian Preschool, we believe:
Each child is a gift of God, loved and created by Him and welcomed into His family through Jesus. (Matt. 19:14)
Children learn best in an emotionally and physically safe environment.
Children who are guided positively become responsible, caring individuals who are self-motivated and self-controlled.
Each child is created by God with an amazing capacity to learn and grow (Psalm 139:14). We honor God’s creation and serve children best when we understand these truths:
• Each child possesses unique gifts and needs.
• Children’s growth follows developmental patterns that are sequential in nature and an orderly process.
• Children learn best when we educate the whole child, nurturing spiritual, physical, social, emotional, creative, and cognitive/language growth.
• Children learn best through play involving multi-sensory, hands-on activities.
St. John Christian Preschool is a licensed child-care facility. Our license, issued by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, is displayed on the preschool bulletin board beside the director's office. Any person wishing to see our copy of the Administrative Rules and Laws governing our licensure may do so. Compliance report forms from the State of Ohio and evaluation forms from the Health, Building, and Fire Departments are available upon request from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) requires basic enrollment and health information before a child is considered enrolled. This includes a current medical statement for each child. Medical statements are valid for 13 months from the date of the last well-child appointment. The form includes a record of immunizations and screenings, a statement that the child is in suitable condition for group care, and a list of any limitations or health conditions. The form must be signed and dated by the physician or certified nurse practitioner that did the exam and returned before the current one expires. We will send you a reminder before your current form expires.
Additional special programs may be offered. All programs offered will follow licensing rules and laws.
St. John Christian Preschool is nationally accredited through National Lutheran Schools Accreditation, a rigorous process to identify excellent early childhood centers and plan meaningful ongoing improvement goals. This accreditation process demands high standards for operations, partnerships with families and the church, and teaching practices for all developmental areas of learning. It also encourages innovation to meet the needs of the children and their families.
