WHAT YOUR GIFTS DO

The need for preschool education in our community is crucial to the growth and development of future generations.

Many low-income children in the Denton community do not have the opportunity to attend preschool for various reasons.

If at-risk children do not get a quality preschool education, 

  • 25% are more likely to drop out of high school

  • 40% are more likely to become a teen parent

  • 60% are more likely to not go to college

  • 70% are more likely to be arrested for a violent crime

*According to Early Childhood Education Zone

Denton Christian Preschool (DCP) exists to make sure at-risk children are given the opportunity to reach their potential and be ready for  kindergarten by providing a preschool program. Our program is focuses on five important components: 

  1. Providing developmentally appropriate learning activities in a classroom setting

  2. Transporting students to and from school

  3. Preparing and serving homemade nutritious meals and snacks

  4. Providing access to medical, dental, speech, and other diagnostic screenings and referrals

  5. Creating close connections with families through monthly parenting events.

Your gift will help us to ensure we can continue to provide these services so developmental milestones are achieved and our children are well-equipped for school and life. Learn more here.
