Preschool Update Feb. 2022

Here is a word from our Interim Preschool Director, Ellen Damery, with the most recent news about our preschool re-opening in the Fall of 2022.


Central Christian Preschool is officially reopening this Fall! The first day of school will be Tuesday, September 6, 2022. We began registering students during the month of January.


Our 3's class will meet Monday-Wednesday, 9-11:30am and our 4's/5's class will meet Monday-Thursday, 9:00-11:30am. If your family is interested in enrolling your child, please call our office at 217-428-4336 or email                 .


We have found several wonderful staff members who are excited to join our team but we are still looking to hire an additional part-time preschool teacher. We are in communication with the Early Education Department at Millikin      University about recruitment possibilities and are planning to create internship opportunities for their education students as well.  If you have any suggestions of candidates we might pursue, please don’t hesitate to let us know. 


One of things we want to emphasize with the preschool’s re-opening is a stronger connection with the members of Central.  We plan to post volunteer opportunities to help support the preschool as they arise.  For now, be on the lookout for a “Playground Work Day” sometime this Spring, led by one of our preschool board members, Mike Munos.


Please spread the word with friends and family about our preschool!  


Blessings – Michael
