The goal of our program is to provide a safe, happy environment in which preschool children have the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually.

It is our philosophy that instilling a love of learning in a child is the most effective way to prepare him or her for further education, and our proven track record in preparing children for kindergarten bears that out.

We believe in hands-on learning. Preschoolers learn by doing. Touching, seeing, hearing, tasting and sometimes even smelling, all make learning more meaningful to them.

Relationships are very important to us at Front Street, our relationships with the children and families we serve, and the relationships the children develop with each other. Because we know that social skills are among the most important skills children will need for success in school and in life, we place a high value on teaching and encouraging them.

We appreciate that parents choose to be partners with us, and we place a high value on parent involvement in our program. One representative from each classroom serves on our 14 member Parent Board, which also includes several at-large members and an executive board which includes representatives of the church. This advisory board meets every other month. There are many additional opportunities for all parents to be involved throughout the year.

Children who are members of Front Street United Methodist Church are given first priority in enrolling in our playschool, but we also serve many children in the larger community. We value diversity and admit children into our program without regard to race or country of origin. We have a scholarship program to help families who may not be able to afford the full cost of tuition.

Registration for the next year is typically held in February.

Dear Ms. Barbara,
I had been told that Front St. UMC Playschool had a top-notch program with first-class instructors, and I had no idea when I registered Ty last Feb. that I would be the one singing your praises a year later. This is a wonderful gift that you are giving the community. Ty has learned so much and has had so much fun "exploring" with his classmates so far this year. I just cannot say enough positive things about Ms. Jennifer and Ms. Susanne and Ms. Joyce. What a treasure they are! Thank you for your tireless work on behalf of the school.
