"Every lesson taught at WCCS begins with a biblically integrated question. The lesson never revolves in the answer itself, but rather the process to get to the answer revolving around understanding God's word and His truth."
Monica Monigold has been teaching in our Early Childhood program as an Infant and Twos teacher for four years. Check out what she has to say about being both a parent and a teacher at WCCS!
"What led me to WCCs, was my daughter starting part-time preschool. Little did I know God would open the door for me to go to work full-time doing what I love, and McKinley would be able to go to school at Westminster. She is thriving in kindergarten and loves learning about Jesus! This is my 12th year working in preschool. I am currently a full-time student and looking forward to graduating in May! After graduation, I look forward to doing what I love most, spending time with my family. I have a husband, 3 children, 2 dogs, and a kitten. Life is fun! God is good!"
