Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy of First United Methodist Preschool's development program is that children learn through play. Each child experiencing concepts at his/her own pace.
There will be specific planned activities, both for groups and individuals, which follow routine for each day. The program includes activities which alternate between quiet and active times. These activities include: stories, music, art, games, and many other readiness activities. Children will also be given time to themselves as needed. There will be outside play each day (weather permitting) or other opportunities for large muscle development
Self Help and independence are encouraged at all times in accordance with the age and abilities of the child.
First United Methodist Preschool offers a half-day preschool program for children age 2½ to 4-years old. Anticipated classes and fees can be found in our registration packet.
Although denominational doctrines are not taught at First United Methodist Preschool basic Christian values are presented as part of the daily routine. We say grace before eating, have chapel twice a month, and use Bible stories as part of our curriculum.
