Preschool Handbook - 2024-2025

Welcome to the home page for Hickory Grove United Methodist Preschool!  Since you are here, you must be looking for a preschool program that will be a good fit for you and your child. From a article in the Parent to Parent section in the Charlotte Observer newspaper, I quote, “If your son is assigned nurturing teachers and the school’s philosophy is “children learn through play,” you are off to a good start.”  The article goes on to say, “Preschoolers…need time for imaginative and interactive play so they learn how to share and handle frustrations.”  If you wish to read this article in its entirety, it can be found by clicking here.

Here at Hickory Grove United Methodist Preschool, our school mission statement embodies the principals of learning through play.

Our Mission is to provide a loving Christian environment where children feel secure, grow in self-esteem and gain a love of learning. Our program concentrates on developing self-help skills, learning through active hands on play and developing socialization skills. Teachers develop a curriculum that incorporates music, art, children’s literature, developmental skills and fun!
