Since September 1989, the Saratoga Springs United Methodist Church's Education Ministry has offered a weekday preschool program called Small Wonders Christian Preschool. We offer programs for two, three, and PreK children.These church-related programs are in ministry to the children of our community and their families. These programs are Christian oriented but not denominationally sectarian. We share with our children that they are a person to be valued for their own unique qualities and that they are loved by God.
We recognize and celebrate each child’s joys and accomplishments. We teach that each person has rights and that we value the rights of others in our class, our community and the world. Small Wonders Preschool provides the environment, the activities and the relationships that enable each child to develop a sense of self worth and develop their own unique gifts as a child of God.
Under the leadership of teachers and assistants, our classes include a balance of guided play, creative art work, music, indoor/outdoor play, story time, dramatic play and group activities. Each child is helped to grow in independence, social development and to develop his/her own unique talents and abilities.
