The Educational Program of Southside United Methodist Church incorporates the developmental needs of the child and emphasizes growth in all areas ~ spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. In our program, your child will learn and interact with other children and adults in the context of Christian principles and values.

Our preschool provides a rich environment for living, thinking, and learning.   Our program includes a balance of weekly guided activities, daily group activities, and opportunities for individual creative expression and discovery.  We embrace each child's learning style and uniqueness as diverse learners by providing multiple learning experiences through art, music, dramatic play, oral language, emergent literacy, outdoor play, physical education, health and safety, math, science, technology, social studies, and Christian education.

It is our desire to nurture each child enrolled in our preschool.  We empower each child to succeed in their learning experience  by building self-confidence and encouraging constructive self-management.  Close relationships among our faculty, parents, and students are established in order to achieve a strong foundation so that each child feels a bond between his or her home and school.
