Children's Facebook Page
A couple of the teachers started a Preschool Facebook page to help us all stay connected and share resources. Children's Ministries also has a page, Children's Facebook. Please check them out! We hope this will be helpful to you especially during these next few weeks.
Check FUMC website and our Facebook page often for updates.

FUMC Preschool follows the Whole Child Wellness Model, which is designed to enrich your child physically, spiritually, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. We are dedicated to surrounding children with a loving, safe environment where they will grow in their love of self, others, God, and learning. Our program is play-based with hands-on learning that is dedicated to providing children with an academic environment filled with stimulating educational experiences. Each classroom incorporates science, math concepts (numbers, colors, shapes, positional words, etc.) prewriting activities, beginning literacy skills, and process-oriented art. Each activity is designed to develop each child’s emerging skills. Fun, manipulative, and interactive activities are central to each child’s learning. Students gain important classroom and socialization skills that are critical for a positive transition to elementary school. Children develop a passionate love for learning while they play, have fun, and grow.
