About Us

St. Barnabas Christian Preschool established its roots in Cary, Illinois in 1992. The goal was and still is to minister to the needs of the community by offering a Christian Preschool program. We are a non-profit organization run by a Board of Directors and licensed by the state of Illinois.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration, and discovery. We encourage the innate creativity and receptive nature of preschool aged children, and nurture these qualities in our students. We also believe this is an appropriate time to begin nurturing a relationship with God. Children come to school with a love and trust that is normally shared only with a parent. That love and trust must be fostered and protected in any setting that becomes a substitute for the home.

Our Purpose

Our purpose at St. Barnabas Christian Preschool to provide the warmth and personal touch that your child needs to confidently grow. We provide an atmosphere for your child that encourages social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth and development as a whole.

  • Starting the day with prayer
  • Sharing and Conversation Time
  • Stories
  • Song and Finger Plays
  • Creative Art Projects and Crafts
  • Games and Large Muscle Activities
  • Science and Nature Activities

Our Facility





















Clean Colorful Enviroment for Learning

We’ve taken strides to provide to cleanest, safest learning environment for your children at St. Barnabas Christian Preschool. Over the last two years we’ve made major improvements throughout the school, like adding air filtration systems in each classroom and office and central air conditioning. We’ve also added murals and updated the building with new paint and flooring, new cabinets and countertops in the classrooms,  new ceiling tiles, and new lighting too.





















Outside Of the Classroom

Everybody loves a bit of fresh air and we love the opportunity to take advantage of a nice day.  In addition to our interior updates, we’ve installed a new playground for our students, had a new colorful school sign created on the side of the building, and have a quaint frendship bench to enjoy a moment with a pal. We take pride in our space and we’ve also updated the landscaping and brickwork on the playground and preschool entrance too.
