All children entering the preschool & kindergarten program must be 2, 3, or 4 years of age by September 1st of the current school year.
Johns Creek UMC Preschool & Kindergarten 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 puppet plays, 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 Me, Music, Chapel and a number of special events and programs throughout the school year.
Chapel is conducted weekly for our three, four and five year old students. Our two year old friends attend Chapel monthly. Our music teacher Mr. Ricky leads the children in singing fun praise and worship songs. Then the children settle down for an interactive, age appropriate Bible story presented by our Children’s Ministry Director. We close out with more singing and dancing as we praise our Lord and end with a sweet prayer led by the students. Chapel is a wonderful introduction to classic Bible stories that children will continue to learn throughout their preschool years.
