| Our Philosophy
Recognizing the vital importance of early childhood in the basic character
formation, First United Methodist Preschool was established in 1949. It's purpose
was to provide the preschool child the opportunity for his own social, emotional,
spiritual and developmental growth in a carefully planned program with a nurturing,
Christian environment. It was and continues to be an integral part of the
educational program of our church. In accordance with a tradition of providing a
loving, supportive, stimulating, enriching and child-centered preschool program,
that FUMCOR continues to serve children and their families. It is the intention and
purpose of the entire staff to foster and appreciate the individual child's natural
curiosity, creativity and ability.
