Satellite Beach United Methodist Preschool Mission Statement

Through a warm accepting climate, we will provide an educational program which encourages the growth of the whole child. Our continuous interactive curriculum will strive to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs of the preschool child. Under the guidance of qualified teachers, the unique talents and abilities of each child will be valued.

Since play is the language of children, a Christian atmosphere for group living will promote healthy attitudes and place emphasis on the importance of good decision making. It is the intent of this program that we will foster a positive outreach between Satellite Beach UMC and the community.
