about us

The Peacock’s Plume

Christian Education Valrico

The Peacock’s Plume is a Christian preschool located in Plaza Bella on the corner of Bell Shoals and Bloomingdale (behind the CVS). We enroll 6-week-old infants to 5-year-old children.

Our program is different. Not only are we a school that provides an excellent education, but we also give parents piece-of-mind. We allow parents to concentrate on ‘how to be successful for their family’ instead of worrying about the care of their children. We consider ourselves a partner that enables families to reach their family goals.

We offer a rigorous Christian curriculum along with a language program. We have a sign-language program for babies – up to two-years-old. We have a foreign language program for the 3 and 4-year-olds including Mandarin Chinese and Spanish instruction. We offer a fall Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program. A summer VPK program is available for students going to kindergarten in the fall but who have not attended VPK. We also involve the children in a community service effort once a quarter. We use this as a teaching experience to demonstrate life lessons and Christian principles.

Safety is very important at The Peacock’s Plume. We have a double entry secure facility in which parents must have a code to enter. We have a secure camera system with cameras in every classroom. Food is provided. We offer a healthy meal plan weekly. All of our choices are fresh and wholesome. We are a peanut free facility.  Our entire staff is trained in childcare and preschool education. They are all CPR and first-aid certified or in the process of being qualified.

We love what we do. Come for a tour and see why we are different!

About Our Owners

Owners, Sherri and Joel Walston, looked for years for excellent care for their young children. They realized that most available care facilities did not have a Christian environment, low ratios, enhanced security, healthy menus, well educated teachers or clean, bright and well maintained facilities. In addition to not finding what they wanted for their children, they could not find any centers that were providing services to help make their lives easier. After work, they had little time to spend quality time with their children.They thought there had to be a better way.

They not only opened The Peacock’s Plume to teach and care for children but to also serve the needs of parents. Services change as parents needs change. Extra curricular activities and language programs are offered so that parents can allow their children to participate during the week instead of taking their children to activities on the weekends. The Peacock’s Plume programs and services can help parents like them spend quality time with their precious children!
