Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Emmanuel Methodist Preschool provides a weekday preschool for children in the community to help them grow and develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. It provides the richest possible educational experience. It is a place where each child is recognized as a child and a person of infinite worth. The goal of our center is to provide an opportunity to explore, question, discover and basically to experience the world around them. The positive environment of the center allows children to make decisions and choices, problem solve, and at the same time, consider the rights of other children. It is our goal to provide a loving, comfortable environment in which to grow."
