The staff at EWUMC is a close-knit group of Christian teachers who work well together to give their students a well-rounded education that meets the needs of the preschool aged child. The teachers plan their curriculum to include music, art, science, language arts, math, character education, Bible lessons, as well as cognitive skills, and small and large motor skills. We believe preschool should a fun and safe place for your child to be nurtured and to grow, and we enjoy celebrating special holidays and special events during the year.
All our staff meet the State of California educational requirements, have passed background checks, and are all CPR and First Aid certified.
