Thank you for taking a few minutes to learn more about Marquette Manor Christian Preschool.  MMBA was founded as a ministry of Marquette Manor Baptist Church in 1970 for the purpose of helping parents as they endeavor to raise their children to love God and serve Him effectively in an increasingly challenging world.  The school began with just four elementary grades, but has since grown to include our Preschool program.
Our Mission
Marquette Manor Christian Preschool was established to assist parents in their God-given responsibility to prepare their children to stand for God and serve Him effectively in an increasingly secular world. We believe that traditional education, like phonics-based ready instruction and classroom structure, will form the groundwork for your child's future academic success. Our teachers are dedicated to instilling a love for learning in your child that will last a lifetime.
MMCP is a ministry of Marquette Manor Baptist Church. Our school is a member of the Illinois Association of Christian Schools (IACS) and the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS).
All of our faculty are qualifed, born-again Christians dedicated to serving the Lord through the ministry of teaching young people.
MMCP utilizes curriculum from several sources. We are committed to using materials that are thoroughly Christian in their outlook, and balanced and accurate in their academic content. Our administration and teaching staff regularly evaluate the various options, endeavoring to mix stability with the ongoing pursuit of excellence and improvement...and of course, for fun!
MMCP is located in Downers Grove, Illinois, a rapidly growing suburban area west of Chicago. Map and Directions
