Children Ministry Weekday School




 

At Alamo Heights United Methodist Weekday School we offer young children a loving, Christian, semi-structured play school with flexibility and spontaneity. Our staff is creative and they treat each child as if he or she was their own. We follow a schedule in each room that the children can depend on and are always seeking ways to encourage the children to explore and develop their personalities.

Our purpose is to provide a Christian environment that is safe and conducive to good health where children work and play together. Our aim is to offer opportunities for the children to grow intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually. We hope to achieve these goals by encouraging an enthusiasm for learning through:

> sharing a daily time of devotion through Bible stories and chapel experiences

> giving each child an awareness of God's love for him/her

> "hands on" exploring

> activities which develop large and small muscle coordination and motor skills

> participating in group experiences, sharing and playing together

The Mother's Day Out program offers young children from six (6) weeks through two (2) years-old an opportunity to interact with their peers so that they can begin to learn about sharing and caring for others. They learn about the world around them through play.

The Preschool program offers children ages three (3) through five (5) readiness opportunities to prepare them for kindergarten. We focus on language development, listening-skills, large and small motor development as well as number, color and alphabet recognition. The rooms offer several different learning centers and throughout the year they are exposed to numerous units of study which challenge their creative and academic development. In addition to classroom activities, the children go to Music class and Motor Movement class. We have a unique outdoor playground that offers a variety of play equipment.

The children begin each day in chapel. We sing songs, hear stories about Jesus and learn the importance of prayer in our lives. Our intention is to welcome young children to God's family during this short worship service.

Our program is a nurturing introduction to "school" for young children. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve your family in taking care of your child.
