The preschool of Christ United Methodist Church is a ministry to the families in the community. The children are our first priority. Through play and guided learning, we provide experiences in a loving Christian environment. The program is governed by the Weekday Ministry Board reporting to the Church Council on Ministries/Administrative Board. Our goal is to provide a developmentally based curriculum that nurtures a child's growth: socially, physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Your child will learn through being active, through having a close personal interaction with his/her peers and, through play and by being in an environment designed to encourage learning.
Christ UMC preschool is currently enrolling for the Fall 2023-2024 preschool year. Children enroll in classes based on their age by August 31st for the preschool year.
The director will confirm availability in the classroom and then families should pay the non-refundable registration fee to hold their spot. Some classes are filled as soon a preschool registration opens to currently enrolled students.

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.
