Purpose
God's House Kindergarten and Day Care is a Christian school for children two to five years old. Our goal is to teach young minds Biblical principles in order to enable them to discover God's love and purpose in their lives. Operating as a ministry of Altadena Valley Presbyterian Church, the school focuses on each child's mental, social, physical and spiritual development. We furnish academic stimulation and training in preparation for future academic years, set in a safe physical environment for the healthy growth and activity of young children.
 
Overview
The Kindergarten runs five days a week (Monday through Friday) 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Classes are conducted for ages 2-5 and organized by age group into class sizes of 10-20. Age-appropriate materials teach sounds and letters in a phonics-based approach and lay the foundation for introducing reading skills later. God’s House is a safe and friendly atmosphere where the children are taught Biblical principles and encouraged to grow into well-rounded individuals.
 
The Day Care program is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. five days a week for children ages 2 ½ - 5. The children enrolled in day care are in a preschool class between 9 a.m. and noon (three hours total) with the same teacher each day. After lunch, they go down for a nap; then if the weather permits, they have free play outside. During the day the children are provided two snacks and a healthy lunch.
