Children's Creative Playday is a learn-through-play experience for preschoolers' age eighteen months to six years. Originally developed out of a community need for a quality preschool, the program has grown into an important ministry of First United Methodist Church of Allen. Our program runs September through May. Classes are Monday through Thursday 9:00 am until 1:45 pm.
The educational philosophy of Children's Creative Playday is based on meeting the individual needs of each child. Our goal is to provide a warm, loving and safe environment in which children can grow and learn.
We use Frog Street Press as our starting point for curriculum in our toddler, 2s, 3s, and PreK 4s classes. Our curriculum includes language, pre-reading development, science and math discovery, creative art opportunities, development of motor skills and coordination, imagination
enrichment and social interactions that develop
life long communication skills.
Children enjoy music class, yoga class
and Chapel time each week. Our music class includes instruments, rhythmic dance and singing. The yoga class works to develop large motor skills needed for proper physical development. Chapel time consists of simple Bible stories and Christian values.
