Philosophy

The preschool at Johns Creek United Methodist Church provides a loving, Christian environment for the young child that encourages him/her to grow and develop in preparation for the next level of learning. 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. Our uniquely talented teachers are chosen for their educational backgrounds, experiences, passion for teaching and natural sensitivity to the needs of young children. The educational program is designed to create developmentally appropriate activities for each child in a fun and inviting way that makes them want to come back for more!  Through creative, age appropriate  and engaging activities, children develop positive feelings about their abilities and progress and fall in love with learning! 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, child centered and teacher directed activities.  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.
