Vale UMC Preschool offers a mixed-age play based preschool program for 3-5 year olds.  We have a small teacher to student ratio of 1:5. Students enjoy chapel, music, movement, and art lessons.

Our experienced teachers offer a nurturing, developmentally based learning program that encourages children to explore and expand their world—within the comfort zone of a small classroom. We believe in “learning through play” and strive to provide a loving, Christian setting that fosters intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual development.

Other unique features of our preschool include:

  • Music lessons
  • Movement lessons
  • Chapel once a month, led by Pastor Jeff
  • Daily outside play (weather permitting) on our large playground
  • Student/Teacher ratios – approximately 5:1
