By creating a hands-on multi-sensory experience that reaches multiple learners through the use of all five senses, we provide the ideal setting for learning. At Hilliard United Methodist Church preschool, we offer a developmentally appropriate curriculum, which strives to meet the needs of each individual child. We realize that all children enter our doors with different experiences and levels of knowledge and our goal is to provide an environment that allows for such uniqueness.

Visual Learners: Our visual learners have plenty of opportunity to view print in the classroom. Word walls, names, charts, labels… are visible throughout the classrooms. Multi-dimensional projects and puzzles are always within reach.

Auditory Learners: Those children that learn best from auditory stimuli will be dancing and moving to the sounds of the alphabet, the rhythm of poetry, and participating in mathematical aspects of our transitional songs.

Kinesthetic Learners: Our kinesthetic learners have ample opportunity to explore our world through hands-on activities. Finger painting with primary colors to form secondary colors, writing words in sand, manipulating play dough to strengthen fine motor skills, and building towers of blocks all enhance the preschool experience for the tactile learner.
Introverts and Extroverts:  Our classrooms are filled with a variety of opportunities to engage introverts, as well as the extrovert. Our program is based on the development of the social/emotional growth of each child. Ideally learning takes place in an environment that allows the child to feel safe, secure and respected by the adults around them.
