This is an age where children are full of wonder and spend a lot of time watching, observing and imitating, and where they are busy exploring their world. At UMC, our Preschool program assists children in reaching their independence, at their own time, in relation to their domains of development (social/emotional, cognitive, and physical.)
Our Preschool program includes a daily snack prepared with the children, a daily art project, circle times, and free play time both inside and outside. Please visit our “What is a co-op” page to find out more about the vital role parents play in our classrooms.
Our 3 day a week preschool program is for children who turned 3 before September 1st 2017.
We have 2 preschool classes. One runs from 8.45am to 11.15am and the other from 11.30am – 2.15pm.
Lunch bunch is a wonderful opportunity for your child to spend some more time with their teacher. It is an optional extended day, one or two days a week. For a small fee your child can stay for an extra 1 hr and 15 mins and enjoy some extra play time with their teacher and friends!
Music and movement is incorporated in to our program every day. Additionally we have a special music teacher who comes twice a month. We sing, dance, play instruments and have a lot of fun while learning to love music.
