Nurturing. Discovering. Guiding.
Hilliard United Methodist Preschool offers a developmentally appropriate, hands-on curriculum which strives to meet the individual needs of each child. All children enter our doors with different experiences and levels of knowledge. Our goal is to provide an environment that allows for such uniqueness. Creating a hands-on multisensory experience that reaches multiple learners through the use of all five senses provides the ideal setting for learning
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 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.
We have five classrooms in our facility. Each classroom contains materials and supplies that are appropriate for the developmental levels 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.
The staff of Hilliard United Methodist Church Preschool consists of dedicated, caring teachers with an average of 18 years experience at our school. The staff turnover rate is extremely low and the student-to-teacher ratios are approximately 7 to 1.
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.
