The FUMC Preschool is an outreach ministry of the First United Methodist Church of Burleson to not only families of the church but the community as well. The preschool originally was started as a part time program to enable parents some time each week for themselves, however needs have changed through the years and we now offer a Before School and After School program for children enrolled in the daytime program.
We are dedicated to helping make your child's preschool experience a positive one by providing a strong, Christian, loving, and safe environment. Your child will participate in various activities designed to help develop fine and large motor skills, social skills, following directions, group participation, problem solving, decision-making skills, independence, and an understanding of both academics and the Christian faith which builds a strong foundation for your child’s education. While the above developmental skills are a very important part of education for preschoolers, we, at FUMC Burleson Preschool, also feel that your child’s well-being is centered on their self-esteem, sense of curiosity, self-direction, and above all – love. Love for themselves and others.
With that in mind, the preschool provides many opportunities for our students to learn these basic principles. We feel these basic principles help them in all aspects of their lives, especially knowing that the Lord loves and cares for them. We look forward to making your child's preschool years a happy, loving, and memorable time.
The Preschool welcomes children from six weeks of age through four years of age. There is no discrimination in regard to religion or race.
