Hilliard United Methodist Church Pre-School is a half day
program for pre-school children ages two and one-half through
five. Our program aims to enhance the children socially,
emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and provide
opportunities to develop physically as well.
Our program is based on the child’s work-play. Play is the
experience that absorbs children in thinking, problem solving,
planning and using their imaginations. Children develop in all
areas: intellectual, social, language, emotional, small and
large muscle skills as they play. Other skills such as
lengthening attention spans and gaining confidence in themselves
Our staff feels that every child needs to have a belief in human
values-kindness, courage, honesty, generosity. Modeling these
behaviors is the best way to teach young children. We believe
that we need to be loving, caring persons. Children are loved
because they exist as children of God. We hope to model our
actions and words to show the caring ways of Christianity.
The Pre-School teaches in learning centers. Children learn best
with “hands on” experiences. They become involved in something
that interests them as they discover. Our group time increases
as attention spans grow. Stories, puppets, games, role play,
singing, finger play and creative movement are all a part of
group times. Intellectual growth flourishes during these
exciting group times and all during the session.
We want the children to feel they are loved, accepted, and
secure. Limits are guides for behavior and safety. Feelings are
legitimate and can be dealt with in positive ways.
Our staff feels privileged to share discoveries, experience new
life and marvel at the beauty of the world with young children.
You are welcome to call the Pre-School office with any questions
you might have about our HUMC Church Pre-School. Fall openings
We thank the congregation and church staff for your continued
support for this outreach ministry of our church.
Our Church Pre-School was founded in February, 1971. Our
program centers around the children. We want to help them grow
intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, socially and provide
opportunities for them for physical growth also. We believe that
children should be loved, cherished and respected so that they
are able to love and respect others. Hands on opportunities are
an important part of our program. Children are eligible to come
to Pre-School if they are 2 ½, 3, 4 or 5 years old on September
30 of the year they are enrolling in classes. Classes are
offered both morning and afternoon. Tuition is paid monthly. The
school year is September through the end of May. Scholarships,
provided by annual Scholarship Sunday, are available. Call Robin
