“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5
Our goal at Heritage United Methodist Preschool is to prepare children for the next stage of their lives. We do this through the development of motor function, thinking skills, and healthy interactions with peers. We also strive to prepare them in the most important way, by pointing them to Jesus.

The staff and teachers at Heritage United Methodist Preschool make every effort to build a curriculum around developmentally appropriate practices. The implications of such practices include:
Recognizing that children do not all learn in the same way. Every child has a unique style of learning.
Providing instruction that is physically and mentally active – children should be involved in learning activities by building, creating, experimenting, investigating, and working collaboratively with their peers
Providing hands-on activities with concrete objects and experiences. We prefer play based and experience based learning, as opposed to workbook and/or worksheet activities.
