Join us at Covenant Presbyterian Preschool, located in the heart of Dilworth and treasured for decades by parents across Charlotte as a leading pre-Kindergarten home for their children. We're proud that our school offers both a high-quality learning experience and one that's grounded in the conviction that every child is created and loved by God.
Guided by rigorous standards, Covenant Preschool's early childhood program assures you that your child is thriving in an attentive learning environment that encourages them to develop physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally.
We also encourage the development of a child's faith. Children participate in monthly chapel services, blessings at snack time and age-appropriate Bible stories. They are taught to appreciate God's creation and themselves as God's children. Four- and five-year-olds also participate in Cherub Choir, led by Covenant’s music director and are invited to sing at several church events. We do this all with a family-oriented philosophy that encourages parents and caregivers to observe and participate in their child's development. Join us!

- Promotes children’s progress in all areas of development and learning; Social-Emotional, Physical, Cognitive, Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and the Arts.
Covenant Preschool offers a variety of enrichment activities, including music, art, STEAM and occasional field trips.
Toddlers through threes participate in weekly music and movement class while the fours and fives participate in Music with Holly and Cherub Choir on alternating weeks. Toddlers and twos are visited by My Gym while threes, fours and fives visit our beautiful, light filled Art Studio weekly to experiment with light, color and texture as well as woodworking fun. The threes, fours and fives also participate in monthly STEAM classes.
The fours and fives also visit many of Charlotte’s cultural and educational destinations that are nearby. They catch the city bus, travel by carpool or take the train to such places as Winghaven, the Nature Museum and Imaginon.
