Our warm, Christ-centered, educationally focused classrooms feature learning centers and are equipped with inviting, age-appropriate learning materials. The Tyner UMC Preschool teachers will keep you informed of your child’s progress and address any issues or concerns to ensure your child’s academic success.

The children also play daily on either the Tyner UMC Preschool playground, The Kingdom Kids Center, or the Tyner UMC gymnasium. All four-year-olds need to be potty trained. The student-teacher ratio is 1:8 or 2:16 in our four-year-old classes.
