We will encourage and nurture each child individually, facilitating all aspects of development: cognitive, emotional and spiritual. We will strive to instill in each child a love for learning and a deep respect for all of God’s creation.
The Wesleyan Preschool is predicated on the belief that children grow toward self-reliance and healthy independence, develop positive feelings of worth and inner strength, learn to interact with others, respecting their rights and feelings, grow toward physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual maturity in an atmosphere of activity, under the guidance of caring adults who help children learn to make decisions, accept responsibility for their actions, and find joy in learning about the world around them. As Wesleyan is part of the First United Methodist Church, a Christian attitude, in terms of values and morals, underlies all of our interactions with the children.
Wesleyan also encourages the integration of special needs children in the belief that all children are entitled to the same opportunities for enrichment and growth.
Our program curriculum and room arrangement promotes large and small motor skills. We offer activities in language arts, math skills, science, dramatic play, sensory and water tables, music, with a special emphasis on early literacy skills.
We emphasize “freedom with limits and rights with responsibility.” Limits are non-judgmental to enable children to respond to guidance without shame or resentment. In this way, children develop inner-control as they grow toward healthy independence as responsible individuals.
The Wesleyan Preschool encompasses more than “just play.” A sequential program, emphasis on literacy, and a wide variety of activities help to provide a concrete basis for future school success. Our staff works with each child in a warm, positive manner so he/she will leave Wesleyan with increased confidence and a greater empathy for others.
