General Information

Southwest Chicago Christian Schools offers two preschool locations. One at our Oak Lawn campus, located at 10110 S. Central Avenue in Oak Lawn, and one at our Tinley Park campus, located at 17171 S. 84th Avenue in Tinley Park.

At Southwest Chicago Christian Schools, children are welcomed as individuals created in the image of God. In our preschools, we focus on the whole child: their social, emotional, physical, cognitive, creative, and spiritual development. Education of the whole child will be accomplished by providing a creative environment for exploration, opportunities for active participation, and meaningful situations to practice what was learned. Our program is based on the following Guiding Principles:

  • Children are unique creations of God, created to give God glory.
  • Children are individuals who develop at different rates.
  • Children learn through active exploration of their environment in child-initiated and teacher-selected activities.
  • We will provide an excellent academic base for future learning; families are the primary caregivers and educators of young children; and we will help the children become part of a caring community in Christ, respecting others, following rules and taking responsibilities.

All of these Guiding Principles are woven into our curriculum thematically. The curriculum program consists of Bible, Literacy Development, Math Development, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Music, Art, and Technology.

Our preschools offer 2, 3, and 5 half-day (8:25-11:50 am) or full-day (8:25am-3:10pm) options for children ages 3 and 4. We also offer Child Care before school (7am-8:25am) and after school (3:10pm-6pm) for students in grades Preschool-8th grade. If you choose the 2, 3, or 5 full day option, before and after school care is included in your tuition. Click here for preschool tuition information.
