Westchester Christian Preschool is dedicated to a distinctly Christian worldview which naturally dictates all aspects of our classroom. Preschoolers have an innate sense of wonder and curiosity that we cultivate through teaching them about God’s amazing, ordered world while instilling a sense of joy (and fun!) in the learning process.
Children ages 3-5 are sensory learners. Our preschool program helps children to understand academic concepts through the use of manipulatives, music, and memorization. We provide opportunities to enrich oral language skills with Bible stories, an array of classic children’s books, memorizing scripture, conversing with others, and music. Our phonics-based curriculum is a cornerstone to the development of reading and writing which will allow them to be successful throughout their education at Westchester Christian School as well as provide a foundation that instills a love of learning for a lifetime. We are accepting children 3 and 4 years old. They must be 3 by September 1st and potty trained.
Please call the church office if you would like to set up a time to visit the classroom or talk with the preschool teacher. 708-562-3040

The Westchester Christian School is a ministry of the Westchester Bible Church with an annual budget dependent upon the tuition of the students and gifts of friends for operating expenses. While maintaining a quality education, we strive to keep costs at a minimum.
The Initial Registration Fee/Annual Re-enrollment Fee is due upon enrollment/re-enrollment ($50 per student). All other fees will be rolled in with your monthly tuition. For your convenience, you may choose one of four payment plans:
Please check which payment plan would be best for you:
Plan A: 10 monthly payments of $160 (August – May).
Plan B: 4 quarterly payments $400.00 (August, November, January, and April).
Plan C: 2 payments of $800 (August and January).
Plan D: Full payment for the year of $1,600. A 5-percent discount will be given if turned in by August 20 (1,520).
This plan does not require a family to register with FACTS.
There will be no deductions in tuition payments for vacations or illnesses. If payments are continually delinquent or are not paid then special permission must be obtained for your child to remain in school. The administration’s decision on this will be final. Should a student withdraw for any reason after three full weeks following his/her enrollment/re-enrollment then all annual fees are due and are to be paid in full. The school year is planned in advance with a place reserved for your child. The teachers are hired and the materials are ordered with your child in mind. All records, report cards, and transcripts will be withheld until all school tuition and fees are paid in full.
I understand that it is critical to the school ministry that all tuition and other charges be paid promptly. I agree to give this financial obligation top priority and realize that my failure to keep my financial commitment could affect the re-enrollment of my child.
Westchester Christian School will be using FACTS Tuition Management System to collect tuition for the 2016-2017 school year. FACTS is a tuition management program that auto-drafts tuition payments from your bank account.
Families will be able to choose from several payment options: 2 times a year, 4 times a year, or a 10 month plan. Families will also select a date for the auto-draft: the 5th or 20th of the month. Each WCS family will be required to enroll in the FACTS program. Families can enroll with FACTS at any time by clicking on the FACTS logo.
When you enroll, you will be scheduling your first payment for August for the upcoming school year. In July each family will receive their full tuition balance. Once that balance has been determined, having taken into consideration financial aid, pre-payments, etc., the business office will complete your FACTS agreement.
