The value of each child is recognized and is sacred to both the preschool and the church family at Benn's UMC.  Each child will be treated as an individual and with respect.

Preschool children learn best through play and by participating in activities which are developmentally appropriate.  Children will leave our program with the skills to thrive in kindergarten.  Skills such as cutting, proper pencil holding, recognizing the alphabet, shapes and colors.  Generous time will be allowed daily for children to choose their own activities and playmates.  The daily schedule also includes group time in language, math, music and science skills.

Another part of the curriculum is Al's Pals: Kids Making Healthy Choices.

Units of Study:

The curriculum is based on thematic units such as Self (senses and feelings), Community Helpers, Pilgrims and Native Americans, Oceans, Weather, Dinosaurs, Farm, Family, Seasons and Holidays.
