WELCOME TO CFUMC PRESCHOOL
The CFUMC Preschool is a non-profit ministry of Canton First United Methodist Church, established to meet the needs of the children of its congregation and the surrounding community. This ministry is dedicated to providing a balanced program that helps families raise children with strong Christian values who posses all the skills necessary to enter elementary school.
Our mission is to inspire children in their day-to-day learning through the ministry of Jesus Christ by helping them grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually.
We are certified as a Preschool Program of Excellence for Young Children by the Preschool Association of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. This group, made up of Preschool Directors of faith-based programs in North Georgia, strives to help Preschools evaluate themselves by standards that represent the best practices for early childhood education.
Learning Is Fun!
As our Preschool children participate in many hands-on, age-appropriate activities, they don’t even realize that they are learning – but they are! Instilling in our children the idea that Preschool is fun helps develop a lifelong love of learning.
Preparing Young Minds
At CFUMC Preschool, we prepare our preschool students with the skills they need and the encouragement and confidence that comes from knowing they are loved by God. This foundation prepares them to thrive in their future environments.
