Oak Hill UMC Preschool is a program for the whole child.

At Oak Hill United Methodist Preschool our philosophy is to provide a loving, happy and rewarding preschool for your child. It is our goal to provide developmentally appropriate activities to enhance our children's physical, mental, social, emotional, and moral growth. Our preschool program is for children aged 1 to 5 years. The program runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Two-day, three-day, four-day, and five-day options are available. Our licensed capacity is 93 children per day.

The preschool provides a Christian environment of belonging, emphasizing self-worth. We provide opportunities for developing self-expression, communication, problem solving and participation in group experiences. All are designed to help your child develop self-confidence through creating, manipulating, and exploring. To help convey God's love, a chapel service is held once a week using Bible stories, music and prayer.

In our program your child will:
— Develop Gross Motor Skills: opportunities to develop their bodies and coordination
— Develop Fine Motor Skills: small muscle, hand-eye coordination
— Develop Language Arts: learn vocabulary and the rhythm of speech
— Develop Social Concepts: learning to share and understanding rules and limits
— Develop Creative Expression: discovery, experimentation, creating something unique
— Develop Science and Nature: learning and understanding about their world
— Develop Moral Growth: attending weekly chapel (Bible stories, music and prayer) to help convey God's love
