Mission Statement

Mission Statement

We believe a child’s early years are critically important and we are committed to the highest quality of early childhood education where parents and teachers work together to nurture each child’s development.

The Sherman United Methodist Preschool is guided by the knowledge that all children are unique individuals. The Preschool curriculum is designed to address the individual needs and interests of children through a variety of experiences related to the world.

The program includes activities designed to facilitate growth in the following areas:

  • fine motor skills and gross motor skills
  • language development and vocabulary enhancement
  • problem solving and social awareness skills
  • Kindergarten readiness

Our Preschool Program is two and a half hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays for three year olds and the Kindergarten-Readiness Program is two and a half hours Monday through Thursdays for 4 and 5 year olds who will be entering kindergarten the following year.  Our structure provides a general progression starting out with 2 mornings/week then 4 mornings/week on a block schedule, not a chopped schedule, making for a smooth transition to 5 days a week in kindergarten.
