After three kids and seven years at FUMPS, we will be starting our last year with our last child in the fall. I feel like FUMPS is a part of our family. I found the school after a friend recommended it to me, and since that time I have recommended FUMPS to numerous friends of my own. There is just no other place like it. Preschool at FUMPS is just that.....preschool. Children are encouraged to explore, make messes, discover, pretend, and interact with each other. Everything is hands on and nothing is off limits. Being a former elementary school teacher, I was looking for a place for my children to learn through playing and interacting with others. The only academic goals I had for preschool for my children was to learn how to sit on the carpet, raise their hands, and line up and follow directions. I now have a fourth grader, a second grader, and one at FUMPS. My older children are both amazing students in elementary school and I know part of the reason is because of the great foundation they had at FUMPS. I love it here and will continue to come back and visit as my children get older. The staff is wonderful and they all love their jobs, and you can tell. It is a great place for children to learn to be away from a parent and how to be "in school." I will continue to send my friends to such a wonderful place where their children can play, pretend, learn, and explore to build a strong foundation for academics in elementary school.
First United Methodist Preschool has been such a wonderful start to my children's education. From the moment I met the director, Lee Ann Salmon four years ago, I knew that I would be so happy with what the preschool had to offer. My son attended FUMPS for 3 years and all of his teachers were so loving, warm and really made him enjoy his first experience at school. The school's curriculum encourages the children to be very hands on and helps them explore their creativity through pretend play, crafts, music, interaction with animals and so much more. I only wish that FUMPS had an elementary school as well! Everyone that works at FUMPS also makes parents feel very welcome. My daughter has a year and a half left at the preschool and I know when she leaves for kindergarten, we will really miss FUMPS, but have many fond memories :) I would highly recommend First United Methodist Preschool to anyone looking to give their child a wonderful start to their education.
I am so pleased with the outstanding job the entire staff at CDC does! My son has gone there for over a year now and I know he loves it. The staff are all very attentive to the children and have excellent communication with the parents. They have so many fun activities that involve parents and the whole family. The director is awesome, you can tell she cares about every child and their family. I decided to enroll my son into this daycare center because I was referred by a friend, and I always tell everybody I talk to about this place. I am so content with my son being there and I trust that he is being taken care of. Not only is it a friendly environment for the children, but it is also a great learning environment too. It is a Christian Pre-School, so the children are also taught about the Bible and morals. I would recommend this establishment to anybody who cares about their child’s day care!
