welcome to garden preschool
Our child-centered curriculum combines teacher-guided activities with ample time for free choice, socialization and play.
We meet each child at his or her developmental level and provide a stimulating, creative and discovery-oriented environment where learning is achieved through play.
Garden Preschool is non-denominational and supported as a ministry of the First United Methodist Church. We are located behind the church at 305 E. Anapamu with access through the parking lot off Garden Street.
Our curriculum allows learning to emerge naturally by encouraging the children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn. We promote independence and cooperative learning by guiding children’s interactions with the classroom environment, their peers, and their teachers.
