Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The OUMC PreSchool program is an outreach ministry designed to provide a safe, loving environment that enables children to explore and develop their abilities at their own pace. Through our nurturing environment, we strive to foster confidence and an enthusiasm for learning about the world around us and about the Lord that will last a lifetime. We also encourage self-discipline. It is important that a child learn kindness and sharing so that the child will be able to work well within a group. Our classes allow for individual expression through guided play activities, creative art work, music, gross and fine motor activities, language development, story times and other group activities.
Parents should be aware that the PreSchool does not engage in the formal teaching of reading and math. Children need to develop a foundation for that kind of learning. We have endeavored to provide that foundation by helping children to develop concepts and readiness skills that they will need when entering school.
