Founded in 1981, Atco Christian Preschool has been providing a preschool program for 2.5 to 5 year old children in the South Jersey area for over 30 years. Our program is based on an ecumenical Christian curriculum and atmosphere, rooted in Biblical principles and ethics, which include daily prayer and Bible reading.

As a state licensed school, we follow all the outlined safety procedures of the state regulations. We also adhere to the United Methodist Church Safe Sanctuary policy.

Our Staff

We have an experienced and dedicated group of teachers and administrators with a combined total of over 83 years at our facility. Each teacher strives to create a supportive and challenging classroom atmosphere to encourage students to participate.
