"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
​Worth the Experience


Preschoolers enjoy educational activities that are unique to our convenient location in downtown Van Wert. Students may visit  The Brumback Library to participate in reading events and special programs. Since Fountain Park is right across the street, our classes frequently take nature walks and play outdoor games. Preschoolers also visit other downtown attractions like the Van Wert Fire Department, where they learn about fire safety and explore the fire trucks. Beyond downtown, you can find our students at places like Lincoln Ridge Farms in the Fall for hayrides, games, and pumpkin picking. There is always something exciting happening at the First United Methodist Preschool!
