Weekday Preschool

Certified as a North Georgia Program of Excellence

Our warmest welcome to you from everyone at McEachern Weekday Preschool Program. We join together with prayerful hearts to create an educational experience that has been unique throughout the thirty plus years of this school.

From the beginning, our school has used the timeless philosophy of teaching the whole child. McEachern offers classes with age appropriate activities that encourage creativity and allow children to grow as individuals.

Our goal of building a positive attitude toward learning builds each childs self esteem. We want each child who comes through our doors to feel that he or she is loved and is a special gift from God.

What We Teach

McEachern United Methodist Preschool is recognized by the North Georgia Preschool Association as a certified Program of Excellence for Young Children. Our program provides theme-based, developmentally appropriate activities and learning experiences designed to educate children socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually.

Our curriculum has been developed using a variety of early childhood resources based on the concept that children learn from hands-on, active experiences in their environment. Language arts, phonics, pre-math skills, social studies, science, art, music and fine motor development are incorporated into our thematic units of study. Curriculum is taken from a variety of sources including Wee Learn, Land of the Letter People, The Creative Curriculum, The Everything Book, Abeka, Math Their Way and Zaner Bloser.

Chapel is held weekly for 3′s, 4′s and kindergarten. The primary Bible used is The Preschoolers Bible by Cook Ministries. Christian basics, Bible Stories and Verses are used as a regular part of our program curriculum.

Spanish class is held weekly for 4′s and kindergarten, using Hooked on Phonics as the primary curriculum.
