Winder First UMC Preschool has been recognized by the The United Methodist Preschool Association of the North Georgia Conference as "A Program of Excellence for Young Children."

The Winder First UMC Preschool, since its inception in 1956, has been an outreach ministry of our church. Our philosophy of preschool education is based on the recognition that the best early childhood education occurs in a Christian environment of love and support. Our primary goal is the development of the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and mentally.

At Winder First UMC Preschool, we believe that a child learns best through play and participating in "hands-on" activities that are developmentally appropriate. We also believe that all children are wonderfully created by God and should be respected for their unique personality. Our teachers provide a nurturing, fun and loving classroom environment.  

For current class availability please call the preschool.
