Floris UMC Preschool offers a program that fosters the wholesome development of each child. Using basic principles of early childhood and Christian education, we provide a safe, friendly environment where children experience and learn love and acceptance. We accomplish this through play and social interaction. Close rapport between parents and teachers allows the child to develop to his/her potential and satisfy his/her basic needs, including social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth. Our program accepts all children regardless of race, color, creed or religion.
Floris UMC Preschool operates as an outreach program of Floris United Methodist Church and is subject to 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 appreciate God’s love, which will stay with them throughout their lives. We accept children of all faiths into the program and are an equal-opportunity employer.
Our highly-qualified staff has a variety of educational and professional backgrounds to enhance the learning environment of our students. All teachers and assistants 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 use play to provide beginnings in language, science, social studies, music, and creative arts. We developed our program through fun topics such as animals, community helpers and seasons, as well as stories and discussions. Each child is recognized as a productive individual while gaining self-confidence and self-worth.
