Floris UMC Preschool offers a program that fosters the wholesome development of each individual child. Using basic principles of early childhood and Christian education we provide a safe, friendly environment where children experience and learn love and acceptance. Much of this is accomplished through play situations and social interaction. Close rapport between parents and teachers allow the child to develop to his/her potential and satisfy his/her basic needs, including social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth. Our program will accept children without regard to race, color, creed or religion.
Floris UMC Preschool is operated as an outreach program of Floris United Methodist Church and is subject to all church policies. Our mission at Floris UMC Preschool is to build a Christian foundation for lifelong learning. Through positive experiences and Christian values, the children will appreciate God’s love, which will stay with them throughout their lives. Children of all faiths are accepted into the program. Staff is hired on an equal opportunity basis.
Our highly-qualified staff has a variety of educational and professional backgrounds to enhance the learning environment of our students. All members of staff have rigorous state-mandated background checks on file.
We believe that play is an effective method of learning. Play is a child’s way of exploring, experimenting and learning cooperative behavior. The teachers and assistants utilize play to provide beginnings in language, science, social studies, music, and creative arts. The program is developed through topics such as animals, community helpers and seasons, as well as through stories and discussions. Each child is recognized as a productive individual as he/she develops self-confidence and feelings of self-worth.
