At Conyers First United Methodist Church Preschool we offer many opportunities for children to learn. Experiential learning is the key to little ones retaining the information they are taught.
Arts Academy Our Preschool is proud to announce that we now have a Arts Academy. We offer classes in creative movement, visual arts, and music. These classes are taught by professionals is our community whom we have partnered. Mrs. Theresa Hamm-Smith of Bella Musica teaches our students everything there is to know about music from rhythm to composers to styles of music. Mrs. Judy Mauran, owner of The Conyers School of Ballet teaches our little ones all about creative movement incorporating many forms of dance and music. Our Visual Arts class is taught be Mrs. Jennifer Baker of The Sketching Pad. Her class focuses on painting, sculpting, and learning about the great artists like Monet and Van Gogh. Our Arts Academy is included in your child’s tuition.
Chapel is taught weekly by the children’s director and church staff of Conyers First United Methodist Church. During this time the children are told the stories of the Bible on their level, so they can begin to understand the love God has for them.
Chapel gives children time to grown spiritually by voicing their thanks to God. At our Preschool, children participate in praise and worship centered around stories from the Bible. Chapel is led by our Children's Director, Melissa Carter. It is a time for the student body as a whole to gather together, sing, pray, listen to stories, and talk about God.
Field Trips are done in-house or are done locally due to car seat regulations and for the safety of our students. Fortunately, Conyers First United Methodist Church Preschool is situated right in the heart of Olde Town Conyers. This avails us the opportunity to walk to many local businesses, Preschool Pops, and the Nancy Guinn Library.
At our Preschool, we are proud of the opportunities we provide each child to learn from individuals and environments outside of their normal classrooms!
Throughout the year, our students are visited by several special guests. These guests may have a special job or talent, wear a special uniform or outfit, operate a special vehicle, etc. Regardless of who the guests are, they all share a common purpose. These guests visit our Preschool to share special information and stories with the students that further enhance their learning experiences.
Some of our guests may include, but are not limited to...
In addition to receiving visits from special guests, our three year olds, four year olds, and Kindergarteners also have the opportunity to enjoy off-site field trips. These trips allow the students to engage in adventures in environments they regularly do not experience. Such opportunities do not only take the students out of the classroom and into new environments waiting to be explored, but also allow each child to learn in a way that is unique from any classroom experience.
