Saint Paul United Methodist Church Preschool, After School and Summer Camp programs provide children meaningful experiences in a safe, Christian environment. We commit ourselves to meet the individual child at their level of growth and then aide them in furthering physical, academic and social development. We provide age appropriate practices so that children experience success at school through a well balanced curriculum. We believe children develop a strong individual worth and desire for continued learning through these positive experiences. Meaningful play is the most effective form of instruction at the preschool age. We use a wide scope of activities encouraging a love for learning, emotional growth and social growth. Safety of children in our care is our number one priority and our safety programs are built upon the Safe Sanctuary Policy of the United Methodist Church. One element of this program that we strive to  maintain is that our children are in the presence of two or more approved adults at all times. In addition, we have security practices, devices and procedures in place to keep our little ones safe and secure. All staff members are experienced early childhood professionals who participate in a continuous program of in-service education to remain alert to the ever changing needs of children and the findings of current research. Staff members are active in our state and local professional early childhood associations (SCECA and First Steps).
