Every session provides opportunities for children to explore the world through seasonal topics and special units of study. Literature, language, science, and mathematical concepts are incorporated into the lessons.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

We understand that every child needs to feel successful. Our preschool provides a strong academic foundation that challenges without frustrating, while working toward the mastery of skills. Students are encouraged to express themselves through positive social interaction, creative play, art, music, and group discussions.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

The Doylestown United Methodist Church established the Pre-School in 1968 to serve its members and the community. The program provides many varied experiences designed to meet the developmental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each child enrolled in our pre-school. The Pre-School emphasizes a nurturing atmosphere where positive Christian values of concern and respect for self and others are modeled, taught and practiced. We do not discriminate against race, sex or religious beliefs.
We believe that each child is special!
