thank you!

Thank you for taking an interest in our preschool. We are a small, private preschool located in lower Manoa by the University of Hawai`i. We have been in operation, serving the children and their families in our community since 1985. The Honolulu Christian Preschool offers a well balanced curriculum where children can thrive and discover who they are as they grow and learn in a loving, Christ-centered environment.


Children must be at least two and one-half years old upon entrance and no more than six years old by December 31 of enrollment year.  They must be fully toilet trained.

Applications are accepted one year prior to enrollment date, submitted with an Application Fee of $25.

Once applications are processed you will be notified of your child's status.  To continue the enrollment process, a non-refundable Registration Fee of $50 will be assessed to reserve your child's space.  One month prior to enrollment session, an advanced tuition deposit, 1/10 of school year tuition will be assessed.  

Each child is accepted with the understanding that he/she will be enrolled for the entire School Year and/or the Summer Session.

why we are here

The philosophy of The Honolulu Christian Preschool is based on the fact that God is the center of the universe, and that all life revolves around Him.


As a ministry of the Honolulu Christian Church, our preschool aims:

  • to bring honor and glory to God and to serve  our Lord Jesus Christ
  • to lead each child to worship, fellowship, service, and commitment to God
  • to establish a balanced program that will promote the academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual development of the child
  • to guide parents in child-rearing and parenthood
  • to use the Statement of Faith of the Honolulu Christian Church, and the Oriental Missionary Society Holiness Church of North America as a guideline for all teaching in the Christian faith.

As a vital ministry of the church, The Honolulu Christian Preschool provides quality care in a safe, inviting, and pleasant environment.


The goal of our ministry is to provide quality Christian training for young children by encouraging them to respond to God’s love and to apply God’s Word to their lives.


The Honolulu Christian Preschool is an essential ministry to young children and parents within the church and an important outreach into our community.
