Dear MWF Families,

This year the public school has thrown us for a loop! They are having 3 late start school days, one in September, November, and December. Therefore, we are having to turn these days into teacher work days. We are helping offset the loss of these three days by offering up an extended day on specific  Wednesdays (8:00 – 1:00) to help make up the four hours of school lost in each of these months (12 hours total). These are the Wednesdays that will be extended, and as always we will send out reminders:

September 3rd
September 10th
September 24th
October 1st
October 8th
October 15th
October 22nd
October 29th
November 12th
November 19th
December 10th
December 17th

We hope that this will help offset the loss of these 3 days of school. If you have any further questions please email me as soon as possible, so that we can discuss them (bridget@pbumc.net). 

 

 
   
 
 
 
 
 
Mission Statement:
It is the mission of PBUMC Preschool to nurture the whole child, spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.  We want to live out God's love so that our children may become rooted in His word and know that they are precious in His sight. 
 
Goals:
     *To teach early childhood educational lessons necessary to prepare each child for school.
     *Strengthening families by promoting the healthy development of each child.
     *Serve our community by providing a quality, affordable, early childhood learning facility.
     *Guide each child to understand to love Jesus and each other.
 
Philosophy:
We believe that each child is a unique individual that was created by God.  It is our belief that early childhood education should first teach the children to love Jesus and to love each other and to help them recognize that God loves each of us.
 
Our teachers create an environment in which each child is free to play, learn, experiment and develop at his/her own rate without pressure of competition. Appropriate attitudes and behavior will be encouraged and developd through daily work and play in a Christian atmosphere. 
 
Curriculum: 
We use a hands on approach with the children that encourages their freedom of expression, choice, and learning.  The areas we cover include language/writing, science, math, manipulatives/fine motor, reading, dramatic play, art, music, building, and large motor.  Our program serves 16 months-5 year olds.
