Our preschool is a community outreach affiliated with Windover Hills United Methodist Church in South Park Township and has been educating children in the community since 1972.

It is the goal of our program to provide a loving atmosphere where young children can learn, develop and have fun.

We offer creative opportunities and stimulation where the children can learn to express themselves, get along with other children and adults, share, take turns, and grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

“Me and My Shadow” Class

This class is open to any child who will be age 2 by September 1.  The class will meet Tuesdays from 9:30 am – 11:00 am.  The children will start the year with a shadow (parent, grandparent, caregiver) and will transition to a drop off program mid-year.

The focus of this class will be socialization, creative play, music, and gross motor development.  The child will learn to be comfortable in school situations and will begin to separate from his/her shadow as the year progresses.

This class is open to any child who will be 3 years of age by September 1 and is potty trained.  There is a maximum of 14 children in the class with 2 teachers.

Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:15 am to 11:30 am.

Basic introduction to colors, shapes, letters, numbers, use of scissors and beginning printing help children adjust to their first classroom experience in a safe and fun environment.

Some of the activities include visits from police and fire personnel, holiday parties, music, stories, rhythm instruments, class trips, and organized play.  We strive to develop fine motor skills through use of manipulatives and gross motor skills through indoor and outdoor play.
