Compass Church Preschool is a ministry of Compass Church of Salinas and is a non-profit, non-sectarian, and non-partisan organization. The school is licensed by the State of California.

Our Purpose

To offer a preschool program that provides for the development of the whole child, and enhances their spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth under the supervision of state approved teachers.

Features Of Our School

  • Highly qualified teachers.
  • Teachers are proclaimed Christians and are active in a church.
  • The school is supported by a board of parents who are active church members.
  • Supervised Art & Activity Time includes arts and crafts, dramatic play, block building, sand play, carpentry, manipulatives, play-doh and library.
  • Teacher-directed music, movement, finger-plays, and stories (including Bible stories).

Our Philosophy

Children learn from their play experiences. Each child develops according to his own individual needs and interests.
Each child is uniquely created by God with his/her own special gifts.
Our most important contributions to each child are that he feels he is special, God loves him, school is fun, learning is satisfying, and he can be confident in a school situation.

Non Co-op Program: Parents are not required to work in the classroom but are welcome to volunteer at their discretion.
Co-op Program: Parents are required to work in the classroom 1 – 3 times a month on a rotating basis.
