Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Floris UMC Preschool offers a program that fosters the wholesome development of each individual child using a curriculum based on learning through play. Using basic principles of early childhood and Christian education we provide a safe, friendly environment where children experience and learn love and acceptance. Close rapport between parents and teachers allows the child to develop to his/her potential and satisfy his/her basic needs, including social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual growth."
