Methodist Creative Preschool

Our Mission

The mission of the Methodist Creative Preschool is to provide a Christ-centered, nurturing environment where children develop a positive self-image and experience the love of God while learning skills to prepare for future school success.

Our Vision

Our vision is for children to become life-long learners in a process of learning to love God, to love others and to love learning.
 

Approach

We provide hands-on fun and developmentally appropriate opportunities for creative self-expression and to accommodate the individual learning styles and needs of each child. Our learning activities follow and incorporate all domains of Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards. In addition, we teach children about God’s love through Bible stories, Bible verses and songs, and prayer. We recognize God has created each child to be a unique individual and that each child will progress at his/her own rate. Our goal is to prepare each child for success in school and life.
 

Age Requirements

Students must be 3 or 4 years old by September 30 of the year of enrollment. Children must be completely toilet-trained in order to attend our preschool.
 

Licensing and Student/Teacher Ratios

We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Our 3 year old classes have up to 12 children with two adult staff members. Our 4 year old classes have up to 16 children with two adult staff members. Our ratio allows for individualized attention for each student.
 

Staff

Our dedicated staff has many years of teaching experience and they continue to take courses and attend workshops to comply with state requirements to enrich our program and to develop as professionals.
 

Registration

Registration begins each January for fall entry. Priority is given to church members. Registration dates will be published on our church website, in the weekly church announcements and in the Marysville Journal Tribune.
