Preschool

Mission Statement: The Preschool is an outreach ministry of the Griffin First United Methodist Church. Its mission is to provide a strong educational foundation in a safe and loving environment where children learn about God’s Word and their place in His world.

We are a half-day, weekday Preschool for 12 months through Kindergarten. Children attend classes from August through May, generally following the local school calendar.
There are 2 day, 3 day, and 5 day classes to suit a child’s developmental needs.

The program follows the Georgia Early Standards, Georgia Pre-K Standards, and Georgia Kindergarten Common Core Standards, so that children can matriculate readily into other school settings.
The school encourages growth in all areas of a child’s life. Children receive socialization through play, academic growth through our exciting curriculum, and spiritual growth through Chapel and Bible stories.

The Church sponsors Summer Blast, which is a one-week preschool camp during the summer, operated by the Preschool. In addition, there are seasonal events such as the Winter Carnival.
The Preschool Office is open from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday through Friday when school is in session, as well as intermittently throughout the summer. Debby Daniel-Bryant (debby.danielbryant@griffin-fumc.org) is the Director, and Angie Bergen (angie.bergen@griffin-fumc.org) is the Financial Director. The Preschool is a member of the Georgia Preschool Association and North Georgia Preschool Director’s Association where we have been designated as a Program of Excellence.

Please call the Preschool office at 770-228-0166 for questions and to schedule a visit.
