Discovery Place Preschool of Christ United Methodist Church

Preschool News

Discovery Place Preschool has a summer camp that will begin on June 5th. We are now enrolling students ages 18 months - 10 years old  in our 2018 summer camp. We have been busy planning an exciting summer camp. So far, for our older summer camp students (3+), we have a magician scheduled for a few visits, we have mad science scheduled to visit a few times, we have splash days planned, and more! We love doing splash days, art, sensory and some cooking with all of our students during the summer months. We also understand that it’s important to continue learning throughout summer, so we will take a little time each day to review age-appropriate concepts. For our older students, this will include a bit of reading or writing, while our younger students will review more basic academic concepts. Don’t worry though; summer camp will be SO fun, they may forget they’re learning! Click here for more details about summer camp.

Our Preschool

Discovery Place Preschool is housed inside of Christ United Methodist Church. We first opened our doors in 1997 as Parent’s Day Out. We provided full day drop-in child care for almost 20 years. We then transitioned into a half-day preschool program in 2015. We offer both morning (9 AM-12 PM) and afternoon (1 PM- 4 PM) preschool sessions. We serve children age 18 months-5 years on a traditional school year calendar. We also have a summer preschool program that serves children 18 months- 9 years of age. Our Preschool has exceptionally low teacher to student ratios. We have two teachers in each of our four classrooms. This averages out to 1 teacher to 4 children in our youngest group and 1 teacher to 7 children in our 4/5 Pre-K class. Call us today to find out more information about our program.

Our Mission

The Discovery Place Preschool program is a ministry of Christ United Methodist Church.  We teach and show God’s love to children in ways a preschooler can understand.  Our goal is to provide for each child’s emotional, social, physical, cognitive and spiritual needs in a safe and loving Christian environment.  As a community, our greatest hope is that our students grow on a foundation of God’s love and basic bible principles, that they develop a love of learning with an insatiable curiosity, and build life-long friendships that begin in our program. 

Our Teachers

It might be reassuring to know that the qualities that you value in a person to look after your child are just the kind of qualities that we value too.  Warmth, sensitivity, confidence and understanding are the characteristics we look for and value in our teachers at Discovery Place Preschool. Our teachers LOVE to come to work. They love interacting with the children and helping them to grow and learn new concepts. Currently we have 9 teachers on our staff in 4 classrooms. Together, our teachers have over 40 years of teaching experience just at Discovery Place Preschool!
