Our goal at Christ UMC Preschool is to provide a developmentally-based curriculum that nurtures a child's growth spiritually, emotionally, socially, academically, and physically.
Benefits of Children Attending Preschool
Children who are around other children in a preschool setting are constantly given opportunities to learn to interact gracefully in social situations. They are lovingly guided by experienced teachers as to how and why we treat each other with respect. Preschool helps to transition children into participating in activities in a group setting. This ensures when they get to “big” school, they are ready to focus on academics.
Preschool children learn best through play and hands on experiences. While we do give an informal assessment of our TK students’ academic readiness for kindergarten, there are no tests in preschool. Our learning style is active and creative and many times student-driven. Students reach towards nationally-established kindergarten learning standards with manipulatives, art, nature, literacy and creative play.
Most students literally run into school. They are so happy to be here. Many parents tell us of students begging to return to school during holiday breaks.
Every parent can use some child-free time to accomplish tasks. Think of how easy it will be to focus on your goals when your children are safe here with us, having a great time growing, playing and learning.
