Why Christ the King for your Child?

A Christian Preschool.  Christmas, Easter and Prayers to Jesus Christ are celebrated without restraint.  All are welcome to attend, Christian or not.  But a Christian atmosphere is safe, supporting and caring, a blessing to all!

A supporting parish and staff.  The congregation and pastor fully support this preschool and Parents Day Out as part of the mission of Christ to our community.  The staff is professionally trained and certified.  The staff/student ratio is low, 1/5.

Experience.  Our preschool has been in operation since 2000.  We have 'graduated' well over 100 Palatine area children to Kindergarten and beyond!  Some are currently in College!  Our Director Jody has experience at Palatine Park District and Christ the King, and holds a Masters in Education, ages 0-6.  Past Directors/Teachers have been Miss Amy, Miss Annette, Miss Rebekah, Miss Valerie, and now Miss Jody.  Miss Belinda and Miss Julie have helped this program with care for over 5 years.  (The children call their teachers "Miss" because last names can be difficult!)  We call Pastor Pastor.

Location.  A very safe neighborhood in a quiet residential part of Palatine.  Very little traffic.  Close to Pleasant Hill  School and Fremd High School.

Worship.  Your entire family is invited to attend Sunday Divine Services, Fellowship opportunites, Sunday School, and all Christ the King parish events!
