Come Check Us Out!
Central Preschool is a Christian, play based preschool that encourages
children to experiment and explore their environment. Our
goal is that every child will feel successful, feel good about themselves
and know that they are a precious and beloved child of God!
Kids' Central is an all-year open enrollment school, meaning children who are at least 3-years-old and potty trained are welcome to join us anytime throughout the year, space permitting. Our facility is handicap accessible.
As a Christian family, we
believe that discrimination of any kind is completely unacceptable. Kids'
Central Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex,
religion, national origin, ancestry or handicap.
A non-refundable, annual registration free of $50 is
due at the time of registration in order to insure your child's place in
the program. Tuition is due the first week of every month. Our
school year runs from mid-September to Memorial Day weekend in May.
We welcome scheduled visits/tours of the school
anytime and encourage you to come see the space and meet our staff or call
anytime with questions.
Give us a call today!
Greetings! My name
is Laurie Bunnell and I would like to introduce myself as the Program
Director and Lead Teacher for Kids'
Central Preschool at Central Lutheran Church.
It is a great honor to participate in one of your child's first
school experiences. I am
passionate about creating a safe, fun, loving, faith based classroom for
your children that will nurture a life-long love of learning.
I grew up in Santa Barbara, CA where I loved school,
choir, and hanging out with my friends. I attended the University of the
Pacific in Stockton, CA where I received a BS in Organizational Management.
After that I got married, had 2 kids, and lived in the S.F Bay Area, Seattle
and Berkeley, before we moved to Bellingham 16 years ago.
I have spent the years here taking care of my family and running my
own real estate staging business (If you want to sell it, Stage-it!).
When my youngest went off to College I reconnected with
what I love to do, which is loving and teaching children.
I have received my AA in Early Childhood Development from Whatcom
Community College and I am thrilled continue my journey here as part of the
Call or email to schedule a tour today!
I look forward to meeting you.
Claire Allen earned her bachelor's degree in
Music Education from Whitworth University. She has also studied Orff music
and has her training in Kindermusic.
Claire has mostly
taught music over the years but has also taught PE at a Montessori school
and English in Italy. She taught music to preschool and elementary aged
children at a language school where kids learned songs in multiple
languages. She's also worked with older elementary and High School students
in Oklahoma City, where she taught clarinet and flute at an after school
music program. She gathered kids and loved singing, dancing, and creating
together at group classes at her home last summer. She is the mom to to
wonderful boys and loves living life together with them and her husband,
Scott. Claire is thrilled that she gets to work with Laurie and get to know
the children and families of Kids' Central!
