Forest Park Preschool started as a mission of Forest Park United Methodist Church in 1972. The preschool has been an important part of the community for over 40 years and has influenced the lives of thousands of children. Forest Park Preschool focuses on 3, 4, and 5 year old children at their level of development. All children are exposed to a variety of learning activities designed to best prepare them for the formal school experience. Operating within a Christian atmosphere, we encourage the preschoolers to practice generosity, love, cooperation, consideration and respect of classmates, teachers, family and friends. Our program of developmentally appropriate activities provides each child with a wide range of experiences requiring both active involvement and quiet participation. Children are treated with love and respect in order to provide a secure environment in which to grow and learn during this first classroom experience.
