WEEKDAY PRESCHOOL

 

Mission Statement:

The mission of Denver UMC Preschool is to offer a Christian setting in which to grow, learn and develop physically, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and socially while learning to care for others and love God and the world He gave us.  

The Purpose:

The purpose of Denver UMC Preschool is to give each child experiences that will lead to a love of learning, a feeling of self-worth, a respect for others, a love of God and an opportunity to explore, create and discover as he learns about his world.

Our Philosophy:

We believe that children learn best through play and active participation in daily activities and schedules.  Our school is centered on the knowledge that children learn through active manipulation of the environment and concrete experiences.  The age appropriate activities and materials provide your child the opportunity for individual growth and participation in decision making, development of self-esteem, and establishment of Christian values.  We emphasize child-centered activities, outdoor play, sensory play, and activities that will strengthen small motor skills.  

We use a handwriting curriculum called "Handwriting without Tears" with the four year olds.  It was developed by Jan Olsen and Emily Knapton, who are Occupation Therapists.  It teaches the letters in the order children learn to write.  We concentrate on learning the sounds of all the letters, but only work on writing the uppercase letters, except for the ones in each child's name.

  *Preschool hours are Monday through Thursday from                          8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

  *Detailed registration information can be found by                              clicking on "Registration" under "Weekday Preschool" on                  the side menu.

  *We offer online payment for your convenience.  This                          may be accessed via the "Giving" or "Portal" pages.  It is                      highly recommended that you set up an account on the                  "Portal" so you may track payments and correct contact                    information as necessary.
