Supervised Play (18-36 months)

Alpharetta Methodist Preschool believes that young children learn through “supervised play.” Play is a lot of fun, but it can also be hard work. During class time, your child will meet new friends; learn to share; make crafts; paint; build with blocks; play with toys; enjoy center time; be introduced to God, Jesus, and the Bible; sing; learn to listen and follow directions; and much more. Children attend music class once a week.

Regular classroom activities include story time, theme days, Bible stories, sing-alongs, art, crafts, outside play, a mid-morning snack and lunch.

Curriculum (3 years-kindergarten)

Children learn by doing. They learn through active play, as well as by observing what happens when they interact with materials and other people. Weekly themes help children learn about the world around them. Themes enable children to acquire information and concepts through meaningful activities that take place in each of the centers in the classroom.

Children in our 3s classes have a weekly letter and monthly number, color and shape. Children in our 4s classes focus on the alphabet, how letters group together to form new sounds and words, sight words, numbers, math (including measurement, addition and subtraction), science and handwriting. Both age levels have a monthly nursery rhyme. Each month, the teachers have specific skills they work on in the classroom. These skills build upon each other and help prepare the children for the next age level, whether it is the 4s, kindergarten or 1st grade.

Our kindergarten program is designed to allow your child to smoothly transition into the public school’s 1st grade in reading, math, writing and science. At a minimum, our kindergarten follows the Georgia’s Common Core Performance Standards for Kindergarten, to ensure that each of our graduating kindergartners will be prepared for the next year, with at least the same knowledge base that children who attended public kindergarten have received.

All children (3s, 4s and kindergarten) attend a weekly chapel, a weekly music class and a weekly art class. 4s attend music twice each week. Kindergarten attends music once a week and PE once a week. Our 4s and kindergarteners also participate in a weekly hands-on science lab.

School closing information

School closings due to ice, snow, tornadoes and other inclement weather will generally be in accordance with Fulton County School District closings. In most cases, AMP adheres to decisions made by Fulton County Schools; however, AMP reserves the right to make judgement calls when inclement weather decisions are inconsistent with our local situation. Please check with local radio/television for weather advisories and closings. If severe weather (for example, a tornado warning) occurs while Preschool is in session, we will follow state guidelines for moving children to proper safety. We may also close our Preschool due to an unexpected crisis, such as power failure, water main breaks, etc.

As soon as a decision has been made to close the Preschool, we will send a school-wide text to parents with a valid cellphone number and carrier on file. Additionally, the Alpharetta Methodist Communications Office will publish the closure on AM app, on area television stations and on the church’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
