For as much as Jesus said, “Let the children come to me…” the purpose of the East Whittier United Methodist Church Preschool is to provide meaningful experiences for children to grow and develop in a warm and loving social climate, including an emphasis on Christian teachings.
Objectives of the Preschool:
- Provide a safe, nurturing environment in which a child is able to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
- Enrich the children’s world through the creative arts, music, stories, books, nature, and science.
- Insure that the children’s insatiable curiosity remains alive, encouraging them to explore, investigate, learn, and to think independently.
- Provide specially designed toys and equipment to encourage development of large and small muscles.
- Provide the opportunity for parental involvement with their children’s’ learning and development through many activities.
- Foster Christian development through Bible stories, Chapel, and other related activities. For over fifty years, the EWUMC Preschool has provided a caring, safe, nurturing environment for children in this community.
