The Wethersfield United Methodist Church Preschool is a Christian based preschool that has been "joyful and active" since the year 2000 and is fully licensed by the state of Connecticut. The preschool is a ministry of The Wethersfield United Methodist Church and provides young children and their families a loving and safe environment for their preschool years. In addition to kindergarten preparedness, Faith development is a part of our curriculum and is gently woven through daily activities that are age appropriate.  

The Preschool's Core Program includes morning classes for 3 and 4 year olds as well as afternoon classes for 4 year olds and 5 year old Pre-K (for students who may not be ready to enter kindergarten). Special offerings feature a program of Music and Movement, offered to all classes, and two carefully developed Enrichment Programs.

The PLUS Program,  meeting 2 mornings a week (Tuesday and Thursday), celebrates the growth of the "whole child," presenting an upbeat mix of gross and fine motor activities. The Plus Program revels in the love of exercise, sports, and a variety of games.

The Creative Arts+ Program,  which meets either once or twice per week, also offers theme-based activities in the arts, integrating vocal and instrumental music, art projects in many media and the magic of children's books. Again, the "whole child" is celebrated with lively games and activities integrated into the program.  

The Little Explorers Program,  offers our 3 year old students an opportunity to enhance their motor skills with hands-on activities as they explore a different thematic unit each session. Some of the areas of exploration and discovery are Colors of the Rainbow, God’s Creations, and Soaring through Space. The children will open their little eyes to see God’s creation through books and diving into nature through exploration. Movement and music will also be incorporated into the class to enhance the themes being discovered. Come and explore with us!  

Classes at WUMCP provide a balance of whimsical imagination and joyful interaction, as well as preparing each child to enter kindergarten.   The Family Life Center (gymnasium) and the large, outdoor play area provide a beautiful space for recreation and fun for all of the classes.  The Preschools' core program, coupled with our Enrichment Programs will provide families a 3-day, 4-day or 5-day a week program of classes to choose from to best fit the needs of each child.

Registration for the 2015-2016 school year begins in January and is ongoing until spaces are filled.
