   Mission Statement

United Methodist Church of Antioch Preschool is an outreach ministry of the United Methodist Church of Antioch to families in our congregation and community, providing preschool aged children with a safe, nurturing environment in which to grow, learn and develop spiritually, intellectually and socially. By offering an atmosphere filled with love and Christian values, we are providing families with additional support in order to maintain happy and healthy relationships.

      Safe Sanctuary Policy
All staff are required to submit a background check.  This is keeping with the Safe Sanctuary Policy of the United Methodist Church of Antioch.  In addition, all staff are required to sign the Safe Sanctuary Policy.
All staff members are CPR certified and participate in ongoing teacher training sessions.
            Our Daily Routine
Our Daily routine includes music, inside and outside playtime, preschool activities, snack, lunch and Christian activities including prayer and Bible stories.  Classrooms are designed to promote social interaction, cognitive skills, language acquisition, independent functioning, and motor coordination.  A monthly lesson plan along with suggested home activities for each classroom is distributed to every child, letting you know what he or she will be working on during the month.
