Discover the Love of Learning and Belonging

Our beliefs are grounded, our environment well-rounded

The teachers aspire to see each child develop in their abilities. By providing a well-balanced variety of age-appropriate activities, they encourage social, physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth and development. It is also our goal to see each child grow in confidence, competence, and compassion.

With this emphasis on the whole child, our goal is to nurture a love of learning, a feeling of belonging, and a discovery of God’s love for them.

We are a modified co-op, which means parent participation in and out of the classroom is required. Parents work in the classroom as Teacher Assistant one week per quarter (a week is defined by the number of days your child is in class in a week). Parents are also responsible for a job assigned to them by their teacher.


A little bit of history

New Life Christian Preschool began in the late 1980s when 2 dedicated Moms saw the need for a Christian preschool in Maple Valley. Our school started with one class of 3 and 4-year-old children and throughout the years has grown to 13 classes offered. We offer programs for 2-year-olds through 5-year-olds and a Junior Kindergarten program specifically for 5-year-olds. In 2019 we changed our name to Maple Valley Christian Preschool. While the original name has changed to better align with Maple Valley Church, our programs will continue to offer the same high-quality preschool experience they have for the past 30 years.
