The Doylestown United Methodist Church established the Pre-School in 1968 to serve its members and the community. The program provides many varied experiences designed to meet the developmental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each child enrolled in our pre-school. The Pre-School emphasizes a nurturing atmosphere where positive Christian values of concern and respect for self and others are modeled, taught and practiced.
 
An experienced teacher and a highly skilled assistant instruct each class.  Children are given individual attention and special care,  with an 8 to 1 student-teacher ratio. At the same time, they are learning to function as part of a group and are becoming aware of the feelings of others.
 
The world is explored through different topics each year. Each subject is studied through books, songs, games, artwork, and field trips. Language and mathematics concepts are incorporated into all aspects of the curriculum. In addition to the classroom environment, the children have use of the playground area, sandbox, riding toys, and gymnasium.
 
Our pre-school program is directed toward the development of each individual student. Every child is encouraged to express themselves through artwork, music, creative play, social interaction, and group discussions. The importance of a positive self-image for each child is recognized.
