Bethany Preschool is a ministry of Bethany United Methodist Church.   We are a Christian school, however our preschool is nondenominational.  We welcome families of all faiths.

 

Our Mission

With God at our center and parents as our partners, we will nurture the total child – emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Our Curriculum

Bethany Preschool focuses on nurturing the whole child through academics, social skill building and character education, Through STEM education children are exposed to science, technology, engineering and math, as well as early literacy, social studies and arts.  There is a strong emphasis on social development with opportunities for guided play through small and large groups as well as unstructured free play. 

Our small environment provides children with the love and individualized attention they need to build confidence and develop at their own pace.
