OPEN ENROLLMENT IS STILL HAPPENING!
(Registration link below)
We have plenty of openings in our part-time PK-3 & 4 classes and would love it if you would share your little one with us.
Why is pre-school so important?
Children are ready to begin learning at age three. Their brains are about 90% developed and they are ready to learn physically, socially and emotionally. At CC we encourage spiritual growth as well, through our chapel program that begins at three. If your child is potty-trained, able to speak, likes to "read" and is interested in others it is time to start pre-school.
What can I expect my child to learn in Pre-school?
Children will learn by playing. We lead our children in meaningful play all day. They will learn to share and get along with others. They will grow physically with use of large motor skills, and will grow cognitively by learning new vocabulary and pre-reading skills. Children will learn how to hold pencils and paintbrushes, write their names, arts & crafts and will begin journaling all improving fine motor skills. Each child will be learning what Kindergarten will look like with reading and math and language. Parents are so surprised by how much their child grows just after one semester in pre-school.
Why Pre-K at Creative Corners?
We offer an extensive two day a week program for three-year old and a three day a week program for four-year old. Our teachers are certified in Early Childhood education and/or hold degrees in areas associated with education. They have a total of almost 30 years’ experience in the pre-school environment between them. They also complete at least 24 hours of professional development each year and must be trained in CPR. Each class has no more than a 15:2 student to teacher ratio.
So, if you want to allow your child to test the waters and see if they are prepared for organized pre-school this is a great way to start. Register now for the 2022-23 school year.

Our Preschool Academics
Our Teachers spend each week focusing on a subject matter through different learning media. Teachers explore core themes in opening circle, reading, centers, art, and food to ensure that the lesson plans are experienced through all senses. Preschool children learn social and emotional skills through play and creativity.
Preschool teachers develop literacy by continually exposing children to oral and written language. Teachers will engage the children in letter and sound recognition through pictures, play, and printed words. Children are introduced to sight words.
Writing and Art
Teachers provide activities which will support the development of fine motor skills. Teachers will ensure appropriate pencil grasps and proper Letter Formation (top to bottom). Art on a daily bases through different media: paint, crayons, markers, stickers, etc.
Math and Science
Children are introduced to simple math through use of manipulatives. Teachers teach number recognition, skills of greater than & less than, etc. Science is taught through experiments or observing objects through magnifying glasses.
The LCUMC Children's Director leads chapel once a week for each class. The children learn Preschool lessons from the bible. In Chapel, the children pray, sing, and dance in Christ's love.
