Director
Stephanie Gore

My family (Rick, Shayla & Lukas) and I moved to Arizona in 2018 from Maryland.  We found Light of Christ Church and fell in love with it immediately because it's all about Jesus and serving others.  I am blessed to have the privilege of serving the amazing Preschool Team and the Preschool Families.

Minis Lead Teacher
Lauren Ritter

I have been blessed enough to teach Preschool since 2014. My heart and passion lead me to explore and learn with the
children through life skills, communication, and God’s love. My husband and I moved from Northern California to Arizona in
2019 and had our first little one in 2020. We enjoy walking to the park, playing with our pups, and getting together with friends and family for food and fun!

I am so lucky to be the wife of an awesome man and the mom to three little boys and one huge great dane. We've had lots of adventures living in Indiana, Minnesota, and now in Chandler. I love to bake, sew, and do all kinds of crafts. I'm excited to watch your children grow and learn this year.

Bigs Too Teacher 
Vicki Mick

Originally from Nebraska, I have lived in Arizona since 2008.  I am married with two elementary-age boys who keep us busy playing baseball, soccer, football, basketball and American ninja warrior.  We enjoy exploring all the beauty Arizona has to offer including camping, hiking, swimming, ATV riding, dining and all types of sporting events.  I also enjoy reading, working out and hosting pool parties with friends. We began attending Light of Christ in July 2020 and officially became members in June 2021. I am excited to have the opportunity to help your son or daughter excel in their education and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Children are truly a blessing from God and listening to their stories and hearing their laughter brightens my day!

Philosophy

It is the philosophy and firm belief of Light of Christ Christian Preschool that each child is uniquely created by God with individual gifts and abilities.  It is our overall goal to encourage the growth of the "whole child" through each one's spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.
