SGFUMC Day Nursery School has been offering outstanding early childhood education for over fifty years. Founded by the SGFUMC under the direction of Rev. Tom Peterson and Mrs. E Irish, the purpose remains the same; to offer high quality preschool education at an affordable price to the families of our community and surrounding areas.
Classes for ages 2, 3 and 4/5 year olds are available.
The 2 year old class meets two days a week and is a socialization based program, where students are introduced to early preschool concepts at a slow pace throughout the school year.
Some of the concepts they will be introduced to; circle time, early math skills (shapes etc.), early science (hatching monarch butterflies etc.), fun cooking projects and many other fun activities.
The 3 year old classes are either three or five days a week.The program builds on the 2 year old program by adding more challenging concepts in math, science, writing skills etc. This program prepares the students to move into any Pre-K program in our surrounding area.
The 4/5 year old classes are either three or five days a week and are for non SGF students who will enter Kindergarten the following fall or SGF students on the UPK wait list. They receive the same outstanding curriculum as students who are part of the SGF Universal Pre-K program.
This program prepares students for the challenges of the Common Core Kindergarten based programs now used in New York State.
