Philosophy

The preschool at Johns Creek United Methodist Church provides a loving, Christian environment for the young child that will help him/her grow and develop. Johns Creek UMC recognizes that all areas of development are interrelated. The school is an outreach and educational ministry of the church. Each child, parent, and teacher is accepted as a person of worth and value. Qualified teachers are chosen for their educational backgrounds, experiences, and sensitivity to the needs of young children. The educational program is designed to create developmentally appropriate activities for all children.  Children pass through various stages of growth and development. Each child’s development is uniquely his or her own and will be handled as such. Children will develop positive feelings about their abilities and progress. Play is the language of children and the foundation of quality preschools. We provide opportunities for children to learn through their play with a balance of self-discovery and teacher directed activities. The time your child spends at preschool will be enjoyable and relaxing. Each class will follow a flexible daily schedule so that the child will derive a sense of security. The learning environment at Johns Creek UMC is rich, varied, warm, stimulating, and safe for your child’s healthy development.
