Our Program

 

 iStockPreschoolKids1

Our preschool program is available for Toddlers (one year old by September 1st) and up to 5 year olds in our Kindergarten program. Each class is designed to meet the developmental needs of your child. Children flourish in a loving, nurturing Christian environment. “God’s Time” blessings, stories and songs from the Bible are an important part of each day. A developmentally appropriate chapel time is held weekly for our Threes, Fours, and Kindergarteners.

Security. Rest assured that safety is a priority. Every effort is made to provide the safest environment for your child. Strict departure policies and a monitored security door access system are part of this program.

Staff. Our preschool teachers are nurturing, skilled, and experienced early childhood educators. We maintain high standards by attending workshops, seminars, and in-service training classes throughout the year. Each teacher has her own special gifts and talents that make for a loving environment for your child.

Family Oriented. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in our program. The Parents’ Club is an active organization that supports our program, as well as unites families in our school. We strive to promote a positive relationship with the family through open and ongoing communication and encourage parental involvement. Our active parents make a difference!

Curriculum. Dunwoody UMC Preschool has a dedicated Curriculum Coordinator who develops standards for and ensures that milestones are being met for each age level.

Music Program. Trained music teachers provide a program designed specifically for each age group. Children experience a broad range of music from around the world.

Kindergym. Creative movement class is always a favorite! Many forms of exercise are enjoyed: stretching, dancing, running, ball rolling, bean bag tossing, and parachute play.

Extended Day. An optional time is offered for our Twos, Threes, Fours, and Kindergarteners in the afternoon. Children enjoy eating lunch, relaxing and socializing with friends. Enrichment programs like Sports, Art, Science, Drama, and Fitness are offered at this time for Threes to Kindergarteners.

Accreditation. Dunwoody United Methodist Church Preschool is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS/CASI). The preschool is also a member of the Georgia Preschool Association and the United Methodist Preschool Association of the North Georgia Conference.
