Denton Christian Preschool, or DCP, is a United Way agency founded in 1970 by individuals from 17 churches in Denton who believed the first few years of a child’s life are the most crucial developmental years. Since then, dedicated professionals and volunteers have taught, fed, loved, and nurtured 2,718 three and four-year-olds who are considered to be at-risk of succeeding in public school without DCP's early intervention. DCP is committed to developing the skills and meet the needs of children, allowing them to enter kindergarten at or above grade level and continue their success in school and life.


Denton Christian Preschool's name of origin comes from the love and concern churches in the area had for preschool education. Although Denton Christian Preschool is housed within the First Presbyterian Church, we are a nonprofit 501(c)3 agency with no ties to any faith community. Denton Christian Preschool does not discriminate based on race, national origin, political belief, disability, color, religion, age, or gender.

Denton Christian Preschool's mission is to prepare at-risk preschool children for success in school and life.


  • School must nurture the whole child—physically, intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

  • Children learn best in a safe, loving, and challenging environment.

  • Educational experiences for young children must include the family.

  • Our goal is to help children maintain and develop a love for learning and lasting life skills.

  • We believe the best preparation for tomorrow is a good today.
