Our 4-5 year old Pre-K programs at PUMC Preschool are based to intentionally meet your child where he/she is developmentally.  The curriculum and activities provided are guided to introduce the academic standards set by the state of Ohio.

The classes are center based for writing, science, literacy, and math exploration.  At times, classes combine to give the children a large group experience in large muscle play, outdoor activities and social gatherings.

During the preschool day, teachers gather the children for circle time.  Activities involving sequencing, patterning, calendar and recognition of letters and numbers are provided.  The children listen to stories, build word walls and share their thoughts.

We provide a 4 day program (Monday – Thursday) and a 3 day program (Tuesday – Thursday).  The programs provide similar opportunities with the 4 day program having Monday for an enrichment day.

On the Monday enrichment day, the teachers use curriculum from an OSU program to enhance the children’s literature experience.  Special speakers are invited to share their time, talents and interests with the children.  After listening to a story read by the teacher, each child shares in a discussion of the book and creates a page for their journal.  The 4 day program provides another day to extend the preschool experience.

The goal for every child at PUMC is to have fun and love learning as they prepare for further educational opportunities.

Our program offers an opportunity to:

  • Practice independent skills from a parent
  • Encourage strong work values such as effort, persistence and initiative
  • Practice social values such as helpfulness, cooperation, sharing and concern for others
  • Demonstrate common expressions of courtesy and praise
  • Teach socially acceptable ways to disagree
  • Follow at least two-steps or more of directions
  • Recognize letters and beginning sounds
  • Count 1-20
  • Recognize groups of one, two, three or more objects for patterning and sequencing
  • Recognize and practice rhyming sounds
  • Cut with scissors, glue, trace shapes and assemble
  • Encourage media exploration, small manipulation and creative/dramatic play
  • Provide opportunities for reading enrichment with fiction and nonfiction stories

By meeting your child where he is developmentally, it allows him to progress as he is ready.  It reduces the stress for him and allows him to develop a passion for learning that he will use in the coming years.
