Shady Grove UMC Preschool



Dear Parents,


What a privilege it is to welcome you to Shady Grove United Methodist Church Preschool! I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing team of dedicated, loving and experienced teachers--all of whom have innate talents as early childhood educators. I am continually impressed by how each teacher consistently ignites the curiosity of each child who walks though our doors. What a blessing indeed.

Our program focuses on the development of the whole child – social/emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual. Our approach is hands-on, supporting our belief that children “learn by doing”.  We offer a curriculum that focuses on the process of learning, encouraging creativity, independence and a sense of self-worth.  Our teachers are intentional in their teaching and embrace each child with care and support. We know that when loved and nourished, children will thrive! Our commitment to your children is to foster this love of learning and to leave us with a positive sense of self, independent, self-assured and ready for kindergarten.

Welcome to our Shady Grove Preschool Family! We look forward to connecting with you and your child soon.

With sincere gratitude,

Leigh Pierce
