CHRIST

Faith United Methodist Church Preschool

One of our Community's Finest Preschools
Faith United Methodist Church Preschool, established in 1988, is a small 
non-profit organization that offers a solid preschool education in a safe, loving, Christian environment. Typically, the children who graduate from Faith United Methodist Church Preschool rank among the highest in their academic developmental testing upon entering elementary school. All teachers at Faith Preschool are CDA certified or have a teaching degree.  
Each classroom is staffed by both a teacher and an assistant, and all staff are trained in First Aid and CPR.  Faith Preschool's teacher-to-student ratios are lower than state requirements, allowing for more one-on-one time and direct instruction.

MISSION
 Faith United Methodist Church Preschool’s mission, with the support and involvement of the students, parents, the church and community members, 
is to create a rich and safe learning environment where every student is valued and can succeed. The school staff will challenge and stimulate each student to explore, to achieve, to excel, and to become responsible, caring Christians and lifelong learners.

VPK (PRE-K)
Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) gives children a jump-start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language and social skills. We pride ourselves on preparing the children for Kindergarten.  Our Kindergarten Readiness rate grows each year.   Children must be 4 years of age before Sept. 1 and reside in Florida to participate in the VPK program. A VPK Certificate issued from Family Central is necessary to attend Faith United Methodist Church Preschool’s VPK program.

 CURRICULUM
The preschool uses the Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP) method of learning, and nurtures children in a loving and safe Christian environment.  The two’s use the Frog Street Press Curriculum which is designed around brain development enhancing learning with natural curiosity. There are many activities. The three’s use Easy Breezy Preschool Curriculum also through Frog Street Press.  It is a wonderful curriculum to get them where they need to be to enter the Pre K. The Pre K uses Scholastics Building Language with themed units that are based on real life. The entire preschool follows the same bible curriculum, Group's "Hands On Bible."  Each bible lesson builds for four weeks so the children will discover God’s truth in unforgettable ways, retaining up to 90 percent of what they’re taught!

EXTRA ACTIVITIES
Our preschool offers computer lab/library, a science room, PE, and weekly music classes with Ms. Donna, our church’s music director.  Children get reinforcement of their classroom topics including themes, alphabet, shapes and numbers in the computer lab, they get to do many hands on fun science activities every week, and they get organized sports and music in a wonderful rotation to round out their week.  We also offer exciting in-house field trips which include petting zoos, Library Lady, Dentist and much more.

CHAPEL
Children attend chapel once a week with one of our Pastors, where they can sing and dance and experience an insightful lesson from the bible.

FAMILY EVENTS
Throughout the school year our preschool families are invited to attend evening events including family dinners, dances, a beautiful Christmas and Easter Pageant, and more.  We love to spend time with your whole family and get to know you.
