Our curriculum is deeply rooted in the knowledge that children learn through play. A typical day for our children includes ample free play, circle time, music and movement, art experiences, playground time, games, language development, sensory experiences and snack. We offer chapel with music and bible stories and music class each week.
AUMC preschool loosely follows the Wake County School System’s traditional calendar for holidays, teacher workdays, and inclement weather days. We begin our school year in early September and end the last week of May. Classes start at 9 a.m. and end at 12 p.m. An optional Lunch Bunch program is offered two days a week to the students in the four and five year old classes, providing them an opportunity to stay for lunch which extends their school day to 12:45 p.m.
All of our teachers are carefully selected for their backgrounds in education, their experience, and their love of children. All classes have a teacher and an assistant. Our 2-year-old classes have 10 children, 3-year-old classes have 12 children, and 4- and 5-year-old classes have 14 children.
- Children enrolled in our 3, 4 and 5 year-old classes must be toilet-trained and able to use the bathroom independently.
- Children must be up-to-date on immunizations as required by the NC Immunization Branch of the NC Department of Health and Human Services.
- We follow the WCPSS age cut-off date of August 31st for placement.
