Our Philosophy-

We believe that when educating young children you should treat them like family and that is what we do here at the Presbyterian Preschool. Ours is an educational program focused on the important facets of early childhood development. We help your child develop a firm school readiness foundation as well as social and emotional skills. Through the use of developmental and exploratory methods, each individual child learns the skills needed for a successful school career. We consider ourselves to combine the best elements of play-centered learning and traditional elements of learning. Our small group size provides socialization opportunities and aids in development of interpersonal relationships. Our flexible structure encourages self discipline in children and fosters eager learners. We want every child to know learning is fun.

Our Staff-

Kristen Chiles – Interim Director - has taught both at the Elementary level and at the Preschool level for 18 years. She has also written curriculum for Compassion International and the Enlighten non-profit organizations. Kristen has 3 children of her own, 2 of which attended the Presbyterian Preschool. She is currently ECE qualified and Director qualified. Kristen began working at the preschool in 2009. Teaching and directing at the preschool is her dream job where she is able to spend wonderful moments with the precious preschool age and still be a mom to her own children. She enjoys her busy schedule where she drives all over the state for soccer and baseball tournaments with her children, as well as piano, youth group, gymnastics, and numerous other school activities. She has little free time to pursue her own interests, but she enjoys reading, bible study, road trips, and most of all, family time. Education is what brought her and her husband, Tim, together where he is now a principal at an elementary school in Arvada. Teaching has always been Kristen’s passion and working with the children at the preschool is a true joy to her.

Two years later she joined the teaching staff and has been enjoying the rewarding world of early childhood education ever since. Mrs. Gordon has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a Vocational Secondary Teaching Certificate in Business Education. She has also taken early childhood education courses. Her husband Dave and she realized that her work at the preschool was a great fit for their family and would allow her to have a fulfilling teaching career as well as being a hands-on Mom at home. She and her husband have been a part of the Broomfield community since 1975 and have raised their three children in Broomfield. Mrs. Gordon feels so honored to have been a part of the lives of over 800 preschoolers in her “extended family” at the Presbyterian Preschool and has been so proud of following her students’ accomplishments as they continue their Broomfield education.
