About the Preschool

The Preschool at ECUMC welcomes families of all faiths, creeds, and ethnic origins to our center. Our goal is to provide a rich, stimulating environment, with a focus on each child’s ability to learn independently and cooperatively. Children learn best in a safe and secure environment, where they can stretch their imagination and expand their horizons helping to build a better understanding of the world around them.

Our Educational Philosophy

The church and the Preschool are “Safe Sanctuary” facilities, adhering to safe standards and guidelines identified by the United Methodist Church in addition to the regulations administered by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.

Children thrive when the process of discovery is lovingly encouraged and gently reinforced. This is the philosophy behind our faith-based curriculum that fosters individual growth by providing plenty of opportunities for exploration and child-initiated choice. All children need opportunities to be responsible, to make choices, and to be treated with respect.

Our programs encourage your child's growth and development with early learning experiences that build a strong foundation for his or her social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills. We believe each child has unique talents and interests. Our teachers honor these differences by providing your child with customized attention and activities that enable your child to learn and grow at their own pace and in their own way. This hands-on approach, combined with our balanced curriculum, is designed to encourage children to become confident, happy, and self-aware.

Our Curriculum

We are dedicated to providing the very best for your children through a caring staff and quality curriculum. Ultimately, Pinnacle Curriculum reinforces that learning is fun! From the littlest ones in the infant room to the high energy school agers, Pinnacle Curriculum helps foster a positive learning environment, run by an educated, dedicated, and loving staff, who guides them towards their potential every day.

Pinnacle Curriculum is all about creating a warm and friendly environment where children love to learn. Teachers are provided with daily themed guides that are engaging, developmentally appropriate, and fun for your child. At these tender young ages, the environment and learning experiences to which your child is exposed are so important.
