Thank you for your interest in our preschool program. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your child in providing a loving, nurturing, Christian environment in which he or she may grow in body, mind, and spirit. Our teachers are carefully selected because of their high level of expertise and their love of children. We believe that every child is a gift from God and that he or she deserves the best in quality preschool education. We strive to work with you, the parents, in providing this for every child who enters our program.
Our Mission: Apex United Methodist Church Preschool is committed to providing a quality Christian preschool program available to the children of our community. Our goal is to offer an environment in which children can explore God’s love through many creative activities. We believe in a developmentally appropriate curriculum that nurtures children’s spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth. Through Bible stories, chapel services, music, and games, within our curriculum, children will come to know the Word of God and will discover Christ’s unique and individual love for them. If you need to contact the preschool, please call Wendy Dupree, preschool director, at 919-362-7118 or email at email@example.com.
Our curriculum is based on the knowledge that children learn through play. A typical day for our children includes free play, circle time, music and movement, crafts, playground time, games, language development, sharing and snack. We offer chapel with music and bible stories and music class each week.
AUMC preschool loosely follows the Wake County School System’s traditional calendar for holidays, teacher workdays and inclement weather days. We begin our school year in early September and end the last week of May. Classes start at 9 a.m. and end at 12 p.m., with the exception of our 2-year-old classes that dismiss at 11:45 a.m. Beginning in October, an optional Lunch Bunch program is offered to the 4- and 5-year-olds on Wednesdays and Thursdays providing them an opportunity to stay for lunch which extends their school day to 12:45 p.m.
All of our teachers are carefully selected for their backgrounds in education, their experience and their love of children. All classes have a teacher and an assistant. Our 2-year-old classes have 10 children, 3-year-old classes have 12 children, and 4- and 5-year-old classes have 14 children. We try to balance the classes as evenly as possible with boys and girls.
