First United Methodist Church Preschool

FUMC Preschool thrives to provide a happy and loving environment where each child feels special. Teachers will collaborate to build a curriculum that will enhance the goals and objectives with developmentally appropriate play, center time and activities. Children will be evaluated once a semester to see how they have progressed. Children will have chapel time twice a month with Associate Pastor Joel Plisek. Pastor Joel will lead children in song and storytelling to help them grow in their spiritual understanding. We follow the USD 457 school calendar and share the same holiday and break schedule.
