First Methodist Preschool continues to teach the Frog Street curriculum. Frog Street Early Childhood Programs are built on 4 key cornerstones and developmental areas:
- Language Development
- Social and Emotional Development
- Cognitive Development
- Physical Development
Each classroom has a specific curriculum which will address those 4 developmental areas.
Our Group 4 class also participates in the grant “Texas School Ready”. Ashley Walker begins her sec-ond year in this program. The program uses the Frog Street Curriculum as well as other excellent and age appropriate concepts and a wealth of excellent materials.
Ms. Sherry will again be leading chapel time for Groups 2 through 4 this fall to start the day praising God through music and hearing Bible stories each morning. The themes start with Creation and Old Testa-ment stories of Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and Moses. The children hear the Bible Story each day told in a different way (flannel board, marker board, books, puppets, pictures, etc.). Chapel time is a great way to start the day for everyone!
