Central United Methodist Church Preschool
Central United Methodist Church Preschool began more than 25 years ago as a Mother’s Morning out for church members. It has evolved into one of the most sought after preschools in the area. Classes range from two to five days a week. Our program offers something to fit all parents needs for children ages 2, 3 and 4. Central has a staff of five that are highly qualified to help children develop into well rounded kindergarteners.
Central uses the Creative Curriculum which focuses on fine motor skills, creativity, social skills and spiritural development. Children are prepared for kindergarten by learning numbers, colors, shapes and letters just to name a few. A positive learning enviornement indtroduces children to self respect and the respect of peers and adults. Extra activites include music, Spanish, computers, yoga and weekly Bible study.
Central’s preschool staff is a hard working, educated and caring staff. Our teachers have been with us for many years. They are knowledgeable in childcare resources in Cabarrus County. Each child is seen as an individual and given every opportunity to reach his or her full potential. Central works closely with Thompson Childcare Development should the need occur.
Two year olds attend class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Three-year-old class is held on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. The four-year-old class meets five days a week. You may come as few as two days a week or as many as five. Two days a week your child may stay an extra hour for lunch bunch. They get to meet other children from different class rooms and this gives the parent an extra hour.
Registration for the 2014-2015 year is now open for church members and existing students. Enrollment for outside children is open March 3, 2014. Download forms here.
Central also offers a summer program. For the months of June and July kids meet in age appropriate groups Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00am-12:00pm. Registration forms are now being accepted. Download here.
