Our Learning Philosophies

FUMCN is a caring, stimulating, and secure preschool environment where children to grow through discovery. We encourage creative thinking and provide opportunities for problem solving to help expand your child’s mind through Reggio-inspired learning concepts. At FUMCN, children learn by doing. Using a wide variety of materials, they touch, taste, smell, look, and listen. Our emphasis is on learning through play and social interaction.

We strive to create a strong foundation for future academic success through a structured, play-based environment. We achieve this through:

  • Social skills training (problem solving, conflict resolution, cooperation, fostering independence, building friendships)
  • Pre-academic learning (early literacy, Hand Writing without Tears, early math, science, art, and music activities)
  • Dramatic play
  • Fine motor skills activities
  • Gross motor skills activities
  • Field Trips
  • In class visitors
  • Cooking
  • Community service
