Wee School at the First United Methodist Church in Van Alstyne serves the community by providing a ministry to both the children and the parents. Wee School welcomes children ages two to Pre-K. For children, the goal of the program is to provide an environment consistent with Christian values. We also strive to provide positive life experiences that build a good self image, foster creativity, teach appreciation for the world, and develop an awareness of all persons as children of God. Wee School recognizes the developmental needs of the child and emphasizes emotional, spiritual, and physical growth as a continuous interrelated process. Our desired goal for parents is that they have time for themselves while being assured that their children are safe, loved, well cared for, and are receiving the benefit of new and expanded relationships in a Christian environment.
In order to provide an enriched environment for the children, our curriculum is written to foster curiosity about the world and develop children's emerging academic skills. Teachers plan activities that include: singing, finger plays, movement, art, and stories. Children will be encouraged to learn through free play, which allows them to learn through discovery. It is during free play and careful adult interaction that children develop important social, cognitive, language, and physical skills. Part of their time each week is spent in Music and Movement class and weekly chapel lessons.
