God’s Love in Action

Learn, Play, Grow.

Welcome to Paradise Valley United Methodist Church Preschool, where we nourish the development of the whole child through a balanced, hands-on curriculum. We are a nationally accredited, faith-based school located within the campus of Paradise Valley United Methodist Church. The preschool offers:

  • Classes with multiple day options and times (ages 2-5 years)
  • Parent Toddler Program (ages 18-24 mos.)
  • Lunch and Play Bunch
  • After School Programs
  • Mom’s Morning Out Nursery (ages 1 & walking)

Our Philosophy

At PVUMC Preschool, we believe in the power of play and on-going research confirms our philosophy. Children learn best through play and through making child-directed choices in the classroom. Our teachers and assistants nurture each child’s developmental growth through hands-on learning experiences that encourage exploration and discovery and cultivate a love of learning.

Our curriculum follows the natural progress of development for young children, starting with more informal structure for the youngest child and moving into alternating periods of verbally guided experiences and creative free play as the child grows.

The Paradise Valley United Methodist Church Preschool Board sets policy in conjunction with guidance from the Senior Pastor and the Paradise Valley United Methodist Church Pastor Staff Parish Committee.

The Church and the Preschool work closely together to serve the needs of young families.
