Christian Preschool Program – Early Learning & Child Care (2-5 years)
Reaching back to our early roots in a Church basement and reaching out to the Faith community (Christian) in Winnipeg, Discovery started the Christian Preschool program (occupying one classroom) back in 2003. Our goal is to partner with Christian families to help bring up their children within an environment that reflects the world-view of a Christian home. Since we offer both faith based and non-faith based programs parents are given all options which are available at the time of enrollment. Our personal centre history would likely have us described as a protestant and evangelically oriented program but we welcome families from other backgrounds. Our goal is not to create little theologians but to sing songs, read stories, and have conversations and prayers consistent with those in a Christian family. We aim to demonstrate the love of God to them and teach them through our actions (and supported with the Word), how deep and wide God’s great love is, to us as His most prized creation. Our statement of faith is the Apostles Creed and reads as follows:
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Alan, one of less than 100 trained ECE men in Manitoba, joined discovery in 1999. He has faithfully served us in many capacities and presently leads our faith based, Christian Preschool program. Together with his wife, the Buckleys have raised a large family as well as help plant a church in Winnipeg.
