After School Programs
In addition to our outstanding preschool options
, we offer a fun variety of after
school programs for children enrolled in PVUMC Preschool. Children must be three years old and potty trained to
participate, and each child may only take one program per day. We provide these programs on a first-come, first-served basis.
We will provide registration forms and information for our after school program offerings in July and as programs begin
throughout the year. You may leave your after school registration form in the preschool office, and we will put it in the
appropriate teacher’s mailbox. Or, if you prefer, you may mail the form directly to the provider of the specific class.
Below you will find a description of each class we offer; classes are subject to change from year to year.

Children already have all the tools they need to create masterpieces of art! Artworks will expand and challenge their
imaginations by inspiring them to explore various art techniques and introducing them to master artists and works from

In Baker’s Cents, children become little entrepreneurs and cultivate a sense of community as they take a recipe from
the beginning stages all the way to a bake sale with proceeds that go to the UMOM charity. Children in this class
learn new math skills and reinforce old ones, count and identify money, create advertising, and learn how to work with customers.
In Godly Play, students are invited to wonder about the world around them. Through stories of the Bible and God’s people,
we learn about how God fits in to our lives, and how He continues to be with us, even though we might not see and hear Him
the same way we see and hear those around us. Godly Play puts children on a path of faithfulness and wonder looking for God in their own way.
