MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY |  9:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Classes offered vary Monday through Friday.

All children entering the preschool program must be 2, 3, or 4 years of age by September 1st of the current school year.

Johns Creek UMC Preschool follows a well-rounded, developmentally appropriate curriculum aligned with the Georgia Early Learning Developmental Stages (GELDS). Our Curriculum Coordinator is an experienced and valuable resource on our staff designated to provide extra support to our teachers in all aspects of their lesson planning processes. Additional responsibilities include creating and updating our preschool curriculum, ensuring the proper alignment of all objectives and goals with the GELDS, while incorporating the vast experience and rich resources of our talented teachers as well. Themes and activities are presented in a variety of ways – such as finger plays and flannel board activities, music, stories, social studies, science and art experiences. Each day is structured to allow alternating time for busy, active play and quiet activities.

Our loving, Christian environment provides the setting which offers opportunities for each child to grow in the awareness of the love of our God.

Children also enjoy special classes like P.E. and Healthy Me, Music, and Chapel regularly, and our threes, fours, and kindergarten classes also participate in “Jump Start Art” and “Shopping Cart Science” on a monthly basis. Children enjoy a number of special events and programs throughout the school year.
