Welcome to First United Methodist Preschool
At First United Methodist Church Preschool St. Cloud, our number one priority is the child. We pride ourselves in not being a daycare and focus on the education of our children.
Each child is welcomed into an age-appropriate classroom that is created as "their space." Our staff adapts to this environment and engages each child on their level. Once a child feels safe and secure, their ability to learn is enhanced. Each child is loved and accepted as an individual rather than a number.
OUR 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR IS OFFICIALLY FULL
We are very blessed that our 2020-2021 school year is officially full and we are no longer taking students for this school year. Our 2021-2022 school year will begin open enrollment February 1st, so don't hesitate to send us a message to inquire! Our current COVID policy is a closed campus to ensure the health and safety of our current students and the staff. Therefore, we are unable to do physical tours at this time. We are currently working on a virtual tour for interested parents which will be available for review by the end of January!
About Our School
Established in 1983, First United Methodist Preschool is nestled in the heart of historic downtown St. Cloud and has been in operation 36 years. Our safe and secure campus features a state of the art video camera monitoring system. All staff are experienced, certified and have participated in annual Active Shooter, First Aid, Fire Extinguisher, and CPR training.
Each classroom provides learning-based centers that cover all aspects of a child’s developmental needs. Class sizes are limited and all classrooms have a teacher and full-time teaching assistant. Our school is a licensed DCF and VPK Provider.
We take pride in being a traditional preschool and not a daycare facility. Children, ages 3-5, learn and develop in a loving Christian atmosphere. Our classrooms are child-centered, active-learning environments where students develop a variety of skills and concepts through meaningful experiences. Activities that exercise the child’s developmental stages and encompass all styles of learning are provided.
All classes participate in the Frog Street Curriculum and our Pre-K classes cover all the VPK Florida State Standards. Children participate in Chapel weekly and school-wide Group Music & Movement events once a month, in addition to what is provided in class daily. Parent participation is always welcomed! In addition, on-site field trips are included in our curriculum.
