Preschool

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

“Our mission is to partner with families to build a strong spiritual foundation in the lives of preschoolers. At Jarvis Preschool, we recognize that each child is a special and unique gift from God. Our teachers and leaders build foundations for spiritual growth by meeting children’s physical and emotional needs. Our goal is to lead children in Bible-learning experiences that are active, involving, and age-appropriate.
Christian emphasis permeates the entire program through Chapel, Bible Stories, our Music Program and other activities. We bridge the gap between home and school providing a warm, loving environment in which social-emotional, physical and intellectual growth are enhanced.”
The Jarvis Preschool Program is a half-day program celebrating its 50th year as part of the Jarvis Memorial United Methodist church’s education program.  The school seeks to develop and promote Christian attitudes and character in the children enrolled in the program.  Children ages 12 months through Pre-K have opportunities to learn through their experiences in a Christian environment as they share, take turns, and play together.  Christian emphasis permeates the entire program through Chapel, Bible Stories, songs, and other activities.
The school is staffed by professional teachers and assistant teachers.  The teacher-child ratio is kept low so that each child will have close personal guidance.
In a caring and positive atmosphere, we create a warm and happy place for preschoolers to learn.  As we bridge the gap from home to school, we guide children through play to a continued good self-image while building social skills in a school setting.
