Curriculum

Assessment

Our program offers several theme-based curriculums that provide students with hands-on lessons, allows exploration and play, improves vocabulary through inquiry and discussion, develops problem solving skills, and enables the application of their learning to real world experiences.
PreK curriculum aligns with the local school district’s academic scope & sequence, Texas’s Head Start programs, and TEA’s pre-K guidelines, and the exit guidelines exceed the requirements of school readiness recommended for kindergarten.

Methodist Preschool conducts and records daily observations and periodic formal assessments to document your child’s developmental milestones and learning achievements.  A developmental screening program is also implemented as a quality initiative and lets parents know how committed the preschool is to your child’s growth and development.  

Methodist Preschool’s teachers are certified early childhood educators and highly qualified early childhood instructors, who have a genuine commitment to, and knowledge of, early childhood education as it relates to the individual child. Our program’s low student-teacher ratios help teachers work one-on-one with every child in their classroom. All staff members participate in training throughout the year to stay updated on the latest child development research, early childhood education methods, child safety practices, and classroom management techniques. 

Our Objective:

We want to  provide our families with the highest quality care and education.  Methodist Preschool is  undergoing the process for certification in the Texas Rising Star program through the Texas Workforce Commission. Click the link below to learn more about how this program benefits your child.
