Li’l Lions Preschool

About Our Preschool

Li’l Lions Preschool is Greater Portland Christian School’s state-licensed program for children ages three (nursery school) and four (preschool). It is designed to start children on a lifelong journey of age-appropriate, joyful learning based on the biblical perspective, as well as to prepare them for our kindergarten program. Children are taught by trained, caring teachers in a nurturing, Christian environment.

What Our Children Experience

Some of the activities our preschoolers experience include:

Bible stories Learning centers Music and Art Books and puzzles
Reading readiness Story time Field trips Weekly themes and letters
Math readiness Science Active play and gym Show and Tell

Our program is based on the same basic Christian values as Greater Portland Christian School. Weekly chapel time includes a Bible lesson and singing. Our children enjoy daily Bible lessons and prayer. We want them to understand that God loves and cares for them.
