Bethesda Preschool and Kindergarten's Full Profile

Overview

Founded in 1969, Bethesda United Methodist Church Preschool and Kindergarten enjoys an excellent reputation among parents and educators as a superior preschool for children ages two through five. Our curriculum, called Playtasks, is based on the ideas of Maria Montessori and Jean Piaget, among others, and focuses on the way that children learn most effectively - through play. This child-centered curriculum offers age-appropriate, "hands-on" experiences in a loving and caring Christian atmosphere. Each age group has its own set of learning skills and objectives and our individualized instruction allows children to mature and develop within their own time frame with positive, success oriented learning activities. Our desire is to meet all needs of the developing child - intellectual, social and emotional, physical, and spiritual. Education is further enhanced by weekly specials such as Music and Movement, Chapel day, visits to our Media Center, and Spanish for our four and five year old students. Students also experience first-hand the joy of growing plants of all kinds in our children's container garden. All preschool and kindergarten students also participate in special programs throughout the school year such as our Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas program and our Spring Sing and Art Show. This allows parents, grandparents and friends the opportunity to see what the children have been learning in their Music and Movement classes.
