Since its inception in 2001, the Norwood Christian Preschool has provided a loving and positive environment for children. As a non-denominational Christian preschool, we strive to enable children to develop to their fullest potential; cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually, with Christian and family values in mind. Our goal is to help children develop a sense of self, while learning to act and speak with respect and mindfulness to others. We want to offer not only just early childhood education but an introduction to basic Christian belief based on the bible’s teachings.
Norwood Christian Preschool serves Norwood, Westwood, Dedham, Walpole and surrounding towns, offering flexibility and quality childcare in a loving environment. Our staff are devoted to the well-being of each and every child.
We offer a 10% sibling discount and a readily adjustable plan by allowing parents to add days as needed.
