First United Methodist Church Preschool

Children ages 1 year to Pre-K are invited to enroll in our part-time preschool program. Classes are held September through May.  We provide children with the opportunity to develop and learn while in a loving, christian environment. They are taught by well qualified, caring teachers.



Open to four year olds (4 by Aug. 1st), this class is held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays for three hours each day. This class provides age-appropriate activities that introduce the children to kindergarten readiness skills.  We encourage continued development on language and social skills using free & directed play and activities.  We will study letters, numbers, practice writing their names, learn their addresses and phone numbers, and review shapes and colors.  Stories, games, songs, finger plays, and art activities help reinforce these skills.  This program provides a foundation that your child will continue to build on throughout the rest of his/her school career.

3 Year Old Class

Open to three year olds (3 by Aug. 1st), this class is held Tuesdays and Thursdays for three hours each day. This class studies numbers 1-10, colors, basic shapes, name recognition, nursery rhymes, letter recognition, different & alike, special relationships, matching, tracing, and left or right.  We reinforce sharing, listening, cooperation and working with others.  The students begin to develop skills that will continue to service them throughout their entire school career.  Cutting, gluing, learning letters and how their names are spelled are a few examples.

2 Year Old Class

Open to two year olds (2 by Aug. 1st), this class is held Tuesdays and Thursdays for three hours each day. This class provides students an opportunity to learn through a wide variety of developmentally age-appropriate learning activities.  The class objectives include studying shapes, colors, and numbers.  These are taught through finger plays, songs, art projects, cooking experiences, stories, and games.  The students are encouraged to develop social skills interacting & working with each other.  The combination of these activities supports a positive learning environment that nurtures the beginning of a successful school career.


1 Year Old Class

Open to one year olds (1 by Aug. 1st), this class is held Tuesdays and Thursdays for three hours each day. This class is designed to introduce students to listening skills, social interaction opportunities, and basic art mediums.  Children will benefit from being with other children their age and develop independence within a safe, loving environment.
