The Preschool & Mother's Day Out program began in 1986 and is a community outreach ministry of Fishers United Methodist Church.  The program's classes are made up of children from our church, the community, many faiths and nationalities.  A board comprised of Preschool/MDO parents and church members govern this ministry. 

Our director, assistant director and teachers provide children with a warm and loving atmosphere in which to learn and grow.  We strive to create a place where each child feels loved and accepted and begins to understand that he/she is one of God's most wonderful creations.

Our Mother's Day Out program provides parents the opportunity to leave their child for a few hours each week in a place where they will be well cared for and flourish in the company of other children.  We have three different age groups, ranging from nine months to three year olds with two teachers in each class.

Our Preschool is dedicated to developing each child's social and cognitive skills encouraging all children to be inquisitive and enthusiastic learners.  Our teachers expose children to all types of kindergarten readiness experiences, including letters, numbers, gross and fine motor activities, singing, storytime and a multitude of hands-on experiences.  The classes are two, three or four days a week, depending on the child's age, and are held in the morning.  Each class has a degreed teacher with an assistant.

Our Mother’s Day Out Program invites children’s play, active exploration, movement and socialization.  Children learn about their environment, to share and play with others, and to make a smooth separation from parents.  
 
We have classes 5 days each week; each child can attend one day with the option of attending a 2nd day if there is availability.  The children will have opportunity for free play, making a craft each week, eating snack, going to the gym or playground, and eating lunch/ snack with their friends.
 
In the Bunny and Tiger class, they will work their way through the year with a weekly theme.  Each day they will have a circle time which will consist of finger plays, singing songs, reading books, and flannel board stories, which will pertain to their weekly theme.

It is our policy, that children in the Junior class must be potty trained and self-sufficient in the bathroom.  Teachers will help with zippers and snaps.
 
The children will begin their day with circle time where they will have discussions, show and tell, talk about the calendar, weather and join in prayer. they will usually have three or four areas they can go to for crafts and activities.  These areas include anything from play dough, scissor skills, lacing, tracing their name, weighing rocks on a scale, journal work, and so much more.  Their day continues on with washing hands, snack, lunch, and either going to the playground or the gym and cleaning up the room.  Throughout the day, they will sing songs and read books.  They will attend Chapel once a month and listen to a bible story.

The Senior class is taught in a fun, play based, academic environment.  The class will go on approximately four field trips during the year.  The goal for this class is to have the children ready to enter Kindergarten both socially and academically.
 
The class will focus on a letter a week.  The activities they do in class as far as their craft, worksheets, show and tell, and more, pertain to that particular letter.  They also work on counting objects, sequencing, recognizing numbers, shapes, and colors.   Children will be printing their name and writing numbers/letters in a variety of     multi-sensory ways.  On a weekly basis, they read and discuss Clifford’s “My Big World”, which is a current events newspaper for 4-5 year olds.
 
Their daily class schedule opens with circle time, instructions on what they are doing for the day, calendar, weather, and prayer.  At least one craft is done during the day sometimes on their own or with teacher’s supervision.  After this, they go to play areas, can do manipulatives, art center, and other various centers set up in the room.  Throughout the day, they will sing songs and read books.  They will attend Chapel once a month and listen to a bible story.
