Welcome to Desert Christian Preschool!  My name is Angela Alday, but the children affectionately call me Miss Angie. With Gods calling and equipping, I became an early childhood educator in 1990 and have been a child care Director since 1995.  During this time I have been thoroughly blessed by hundreds of children and their families. My family has been a part of the Desert Christian community since 2001.  My two beautiful children attend Desert and my husband coaches at the high school.

It is our belief that not only our curriculum must be integrated with God’s Word and principles, but that our methods and personal interactions must also reflect Godly principles.  Everything we do has this as its basis and emphasis.  Your child will have the opportunity to learn through exploration and imaginative play during both planned activities and free play in the classroom and on the playground, with the spiritual emphasis of understanding who God is permeating all activities including snack time, rest time, and outdoor play.

You will also find that partnering with families is a foundational concept for Desert Christian Schools.  It is our desire to create an environment that is an extension of the home which honors God and the children He created.  Desert Christian Schools offer a place for each child to feel loved, nurtured, and secure, while developing personally and uniquely.

I look forward to partnering with you in “bringing up your child in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4)
