Preschool Offerings

Each of our preschool classes includes an appropriate range between the oldest and the youngest child in the class, with a good balance of boys and girls. We limit our class sizes to ensure a quality program and to meet NAEYC Academy teacher/child ratios.

 

Children attend music and motor perception classes, as well as Littlest Angel Chapel, each week during school hours.

Lunch Bunch/Play Bunch

Lunch/Play Bunch is an opportunity for children to eat lunch at the preschool and stay for additional play time after the school day is over.

 

The hours of Lunch/Play Bunch are 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm for children not yet toilet-trained and/or under three years old. For toilet-trained children over three years old, the available hours are from 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm.

 

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.


Young Artists

 

Children learn to draw at an early age. Young Artists will expand their creativity and encourage them to explore different art techniques, using a variety of tools and materials. The children will engage in open-ended process art using a variety of art mediums and mixtures. 
 

Baker's Cents

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.
 

Gymnastics

This is an outreach gymnastics program offered by some of Arizona’s top instructors. The class focuses on children’s innate love of movement and channels it into various gymnastics skills including balance beam, bars, tumbling, mini trampoline, and vault.
 

Jump Bunch

JumpBunch introduces sports and fitness to your child in a hands-on setting. Our year-round program utilizes activity plans that offer a different sport or activity with each class. Most of all, JumpBunch is lots of fun - children are excited and eager to participate.
 

Dance

Plaza Production One is excited to offer dance classes including Jazz/Hip Hop, Ballet & Tap, and Creative Movement. 
 

HUB Soccer Academy

HUB Soccer is a fun introduction to soccer through a blend of exciting activities in a safe and enjoyable environment. The goal of the program is to develop the child’s gross motor skills, increase self-esteem, and encourage group social skills. Each group session is 50 minutes and is staffed by professional coaches.
