A MESSAGE FROM THE TEACHER

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will
not depart from it.”
Proverbs 22: 6

Children should be encouraged early in life to develop traits of independence by learning to do things for themselves. Nursery School broadens a child’s source of satisfaction through many and varied opportunities for play. Here a child learns to respect the rights of others, to share and take turns, to think, to choose and to make decisions: in so doing, the child is forming positive attitudes for school days ahead.

Children who attend nursery school are often the leaders in kindergarten. There is no need for a child to be bored, for even as he uses the same kind of material and equipment, he learns from varied experiences and is challenged by his newly acquired skills.

Remember, each child Is an individual person. They will learn and progress at their own growth schedule. Some children will learn faster than others. This has nothing to do with their intelligence but with their individuality. Maturity works in this same mode also. Our greatest gift to our children is to accept them as individuals and provide them with the stimulation they need to develop to their greatest potential.

THE PURPOSE

The First United Methodist Church is willing to provide, through its facilities, an environment in which preschool children can experience the growth and learning that occurs with other children and adults in supervised early child-hood education.

The school does not undertake religious instruction. However, in its approach to the children the school will affirm in practice the worth of the person, and will teach by interest, concern and love.

Small children love to learn - about themselves, their world and other people. The Nursery School enables them to learn with other children and in a trusting relationship with adults. Their natural curiosity and creativity is enhanced. Nursery school is no substitute for a loving home, but it can enrich the child’s experience with his parents and provide opportunities with other children and adults which are not possible at home.
