The Weekday Preschool Overview

Learning Through Play

As part of the overall Weekday Preschool Program of Christ United Methodist Church, our morning program allows young children the opportunity to experience learning through play in a Christian education setting. Our nationally accredited program encourages children and their families as they make their way through the early childhood years.

Designed with Your Child in Mind

All of our programs are designed to meet the individual needs of each child, as well as help him/her appreciate the joy that comes from learning to be a contributing member of a group.  The program supports each child's mental, physical, emotional, social as well as spiritual growth. Each child's level of self-confidence is enhanced through participation in the program.

Morning Kindergarten

This class for five year old children prepares them for participation at schools within the tri-county area. "Everyday Math" and Saxon Phonics are the designated curriculum used, as well as a phonics program written specifically for the The Weekday Preschool. The large, spacious kindergarten classroom facilities allow the child a unique experience. Low pupil-teacher ratios allow for optimum instruction and encouragement. Reading and math skill mastery are introduced through a continued variety of approaches. Individualized instruction enhances the child's level of self-confidence.

Mother's Morning Out

For more than 30 years, Mother's Morning Out personalizes each child's time with competent and caring MMO staff, affording "Mom" a moment of timeout in her busy day. This program is available from 9:00am until 12 noon each Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the school year for ages 6 months to 3 years old.  We also offer a Lunch Bunch program for children ages 18 months and up.  For more information, please contact our Mother’s Morning Out office at 601-914-7132, or email tcarter@christunitedjxn.org. 

Weekday Preschool Carpool Procedures

Carpool doors will open each day from 8:45am – 9:00am and 11:45am – 12:00 noon for those children attending the regular session.  The doors will open from 1:45pm – 2:00pm for children staying in the afternoon.  Those children arriving after carpool times will need to sign “in” and “out” at The Weekday Preschool office. Children must be accompanied to their classrooms by a parent or attending adult. Children are not allowed to be "dropped off" at The Weekday Preschool entrance.
