Whistle Stop Preschool began in 2005 as an outreach to the growing community of Aledo. Our goal is to be of service to families by providing a safe and fun place for your child to prepare for Kindergarten. We offer classes for ages 2, 3 and 4. Whistle Stop classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:45 a.m. until 2:15 p.m. School starts the day after Labor Day and finishes the Thursday before Memorial Day.
We have experienced teachers and staff who help each child develop emotionally and socially using Christian principles and values. We spend time working on simple motor skills with specific attention given to letter, number and name writing. We also touch on basic mathematics and counting, focus on identifying uppercase and lowercase letters and learning phonics as well as computer skills (age appropriate).
Children learn Bible lessons and make Bible crafts. In addition to the structured lessons, we offer creative indoor play, outdoor playground time and music on a daily basis. Our preacher, Marco, conducts chapel for the children one day a week. We also perform hands-on activities such as cooking, drama and science projects.
Examples of other activities/celebrations throughout the year:
- Parents Day
- Fall Festival
- Rodeo Day
- Astronaut Day
- Valentine's Day
- Monthly Show-n-Tell
- Color Day
- End-of-Year program and Graduation
* In addition to the end-of-year program, each child receives a scrapbook highlighting their experiences throughout the year. Our parents have come to love this wonderful keepsake! The graduating class also receives a child’s Bible.
We believe that Whistle Stop Preschool has a caring and positive atmosphere. We offer a warm and happy place for preschoolers to learn and grow. We want children to love learning but most of all have fun doing it. We encourage parent participation and welcome inquiries at any time.
