Educating. Discovering. Guiding.
Hilliard United Methodist Preschool offers a developmentally appropriate, hands-on curriculum which strives to meet the individual needs of each child. Experienced staff members create multi sensory experiences that reach multiple learners through the use of all five senses, providing the ideal setting for learning. Teaching techniques that recognize the connections between social, emotional, and intellectual growth allow the children to not only grow academically, but to have fun and make friends as well.
The Hilliard United Methodist Church Preschool is a non-profit organization founded in 1971 as an outreach program of the Hilliard United Methodist Church. The facilities are provided to us as a ministry of the church.
We have five classrooms in our facility. Each classroom contains materials and supplies that are appropriate for the developmental levels and educational needs of the children. One will find dramatic play areas, meeting areas, libraries, writing/ language arts centers, math centers, art areas, sensory tables, science tables, as well as blocks and manipulatives in each room. In addition to our classrooms, we have an indoor play area/exercise room and a secure outdoor play area. We are licensed by the State of Ohio, and adhere to the stringent guidelines of the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services and the Ohio Department of Education.
The staff of Hilliard United Methodist Church Preschool consists of dedicated, caring teachers with an average of 18 years experience at our school. Teacher/student ratios are approximately one to seven. Annually, each teacher furthers his/her education through in-service training, workshops, seminars, and periodicals.
In addition to continuous training in topics of early childhood education, teachers are trained in CPR, First-Aid, Communicable Diseases, and Child Abuse Prevention. The staff, in-conjunction with local law enforcement, has designed emergency plans to further ensure the safety of the children. Our facility has a secure, coded entrance and our outdoor play area is fenced.
