Floris UMC Preschool offers a program that fosters the wholesome development of each individual child using a curriculum based on learning through play. Using basic principles of early childhood and Christian education we provide a safe, friendly environment where children can experience and learn love and acceptance. Close rapport between parents and teachers allows children to develop to their potential and satisfy their basic needs, including social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual growth.

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY

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.
