I highly recommend Christ the King Christian Preschool in Iowa City for every 3-5 year old! I interviewed many preschools in the area. I initially selected a preschool that was close to my home for convenience. I almost immediately removed my child from that cold, sterile, rigid, academic environment and enrolled him with CTK. I chose CTK because of the warm, accepting teachers. As a parent, I was welcomed and encouraged to visit unannounced whenever I wanted to. (I was not allowed to visit during the first several weeks at the other preschool?!) I felt comfortable and safe to leave my precious children at CTK. The unconditional caring the teachers helped my 2 children and my daycare child to thrive socially and learn basic age appropriate academics. I believe preschool should be about teaching children good physical and social boundaries and how to be a good friend. Learning about our best friend, Jesus Christ, is an awesome bonus. Our children are only 3-5 years old once. In my opinion, at this age they need unconditional acceptance and a safe place to learn; more than they need to sit like soldiers and learn to study academics. They will get all that in public school soon enough. I would have willingly paid double CTK’s reasonable prices for the SOLID, SAFE, NURTURING start they gave to my children’s educational journey.
