The Learning Center

at the First United Methodist Church of Winter Garden

MISSION STATEMENT
The Learning Center (TLC) aims to provide a positive learning experience through developmentally appropriate and hands on learning in a loving Christian environment.

PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is to instill self-confidence in children through programs that facilitate social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
Each child will participate in age appropriate activities throughout the year to increase knowledge of God’s love; understand the importance of family and health; develop an appreciation of art, music and play; 
and to enhance basic preschool skills.

CURRICULUM
The Learning Center (TLC) curriculum is based on the Creative Curriculum for Preschool by Teaching Strategies, as well as an accumulation of a variety of other curricula basics that support hands on learning, center-filled activities and purposeful play. The classrooms are set up with centers: Block, Dramatic Play, Art, Writing, Language Arts and Discovery.

To help foster that connection, we offer annual family activities such as:

  • Donuts with Dads
  • Fall Carnival
  • Christmas Pageant
  • Spring Musical/VPK Graduation
  • Mother’s Day Tea
  • Grandparents Day
  • Field Trips
  • And more!
