Preschool History  



Smith County Preschool History


Smith County Preschool, operating under the rules of a Mothers Day Out Program is a ministry of the Carthage United Methodist Church.


The program is open to people of all religious preferences.  We emphasize Christian ideals but do not teach denominational doctrine.


The preschool has been operating year-round since it began as a Mothers Day Out in the summer of 1982.  It was originally under the direction of Nancy Moran and Sarah Frost.  The primary goal is happy children who look forward to Kindergarten.  We are working toward building a childs self confidence and improving his ability to share and cooperate.  Our desire is to help the children to become more independent.  A great deal of our energy and time is devoted to teaching the children to follow instructions, and increasing attentiveness and attention span.


During the day, we have numerous periods of free play, center activities, music, stories, computer time, outdoor play and workbook learning.


The children bring their own lunches, and snacks are provided by the parents on a rotating basis.

Salaries are paid by the daily fees and materials and consumables are covered by a registration fee paid each term.  (Fall: August-December Spring: January-May Summer: June, July when applicable.) The proceeds from the fall and spring sales are used to purchase toys, furniture, workbooks, and equipment. The preschool's portion of FICA is also covered by these funds.  Liability insurance is covered through the Carthage United Methodist Insurance package.
