What parents are saying
Our competitive curriculum includes Zoo Phonics and Handwriting Without Tears, as well as a variety of other learning resources that promote language arts, math, science, creative arts, and gross and fine motor skills. Our curriculum and assessment process are designed to meet each child where they are developmentally, and then help them continue growing.

My name is Mariah Baughman, and I am the Program Director at Central Community Preschool. I have been married to my husband, Alex, for four years and we have a daughter, Teagan, who is 2! We also have two mini doxies at home, Harley and Elsa, that keep us very busy! I graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor’s of Human Ecology in Family Studies and Human Services. I love being a part of something that encourages learning and Jesus in a way that is fun for children! This will be my fourth year at CCP and I can’t wait to see what God has in store!
My name is Maci James, this is my husband, Jake, and our two dogs, Kota and Zeke. I graduated from McPherson College with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with an endorsement of Special Education. This will be my fifth year of teaching and third year at CCP. I am very passionate about making an impact and growing kingdom changers!
Hi! My name is Lindsay Morgan and this is my third year as a 3’s lead teacher at Central Community Preschool. I have a Bachelor of Education in Special Education from the University of Central Oklahoma and a Master of Education in Special Education from Southwestern College. Before I taught preschool I was a special education teacher at a local high school for 15 years. My husband, Zach, and I have been married for 13 years and we have three amazing children! Knox is nine, Isla is five, and Harlow is three years old. They are the light of our life! I am so excited to come back to CCP for another amazing year!
This is Zeke! He is Ms. Grimes’ classroom assistant. Zeke is 3 years old (that is approximately 21 in human years). He trained for eight months at Midwest Dog Center in Andale to earn his therapy dog degree. The kids adore him and he brings a calming presence into the classroom. He loves swimming in the lake, bones, cuddles, and kisses! His personality makes everyone feel welcome and we are very lucky he is a part of our CCP family!
My name is Grace Humphries and I am proud to call Wichita, Kansas home. I graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor’s in Family Consumer Sciences with an endorsement of Child Development and Family Studies. This will be my eighth year of teaching Early Childhood Education and my first year at CCP. The Bible says in Esther 4:14, “…and who knows but you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.” Being hired at CCP during the Covid-19 pandemic is a time that I will never forget! I am truly passionate and honored to serve alongside each child and family as we begin a new school year for God’s glory and to become true WORLD CHANGERS for Christ Jesus.
My name is Hannah Moncada, and I am thrilled to be returning to CCP for my second year as a Lead 3’s Teacher. I have been married to my husband, Andrew, for four years. We have four-year-old twin boys, Asher and Aiden. As well as, a three-year-old daughter, Aspyn. They are all so excited to be attending CCP this year. I am currently working towards a degree in Early Childhood Education through Cowley County Community College. I will be finished with my certificate this December, then my Associate’s in May. I taught at Treehouse Learning Center for two years as an assistant and then lead teacher. After that, I decided to be a stay-at-home mom when we had our boys. Then, God opened the door for me to join CCP last year when Asher and Aiden started preschool. I have also been involved in the kid’s ministry at my church for the past six years. I cannot wait to see what all God has in store for this year!
My name is Kim Jones. I am an assistant teacher at Central Community Preschool. I am so excited to be here! In the Spring of 2019, I retired from the Goddard Public Schools. My teaching career consisted of 33 years of teaching 1st-3rd grades in both private and public education. My husband Bryce and I have two grown sons and two beautiful daughters-in-law. We are also very excited to become grandparents in November! Our family also includes two dogs, Tucker (miniature schnauzer) and Toby (cockapoo). In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and boating on Table Rock Lake. I feel so blessed to be a part of CCP!
My name is Nicole Varner and I am a Substitute Teacher at Central Community Preschool. I am originally from Wichita, KS, but I have lived all over the world. Some of my favorite places I have lived are Nashville, TN, and Berlin, Germany. I have been married to my husband, Aaron, for 10 years and we have two children, Landon (7) and Harper (5). I graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s in Family Studies and Human Services. I look forward to getting to know you and your children.
