The Tree of Life Preschool


Dingmans Ferry United Methodist Church


The Tree of Life Preschool is a preschool program designed for children ages 2 years and 8 months to 5 years old.  Our goal is to provide a high quality early learning experience for young learners prior to their entry to kindergarten.  Our staff is dedicated to using appropriate teaching techniques at the developmental level of each child while providing a sound pre-academic foundation to launch their later school experiences. Our small and intimate setting and low teacher to child ratios allow for plenty of one-on-one learning opportunities.  The preschool environment is designed around a learn-through-play philosophy providing many play-opportunities that foster a myriad of skills.  Hands-on learning activities are coupled with our daily circle time, crafts, music and movement and our weekly chapel time that promotes spiritual growth. 


We provide several programs designed to meet a variety of familial needs.

Registration at the Tree of Life is considered open so long as spots remain available in the class.  We encourage families to begin enrolling in March the year prior to your child's enrollment.  Our 3-day a.m. and full day programs fill quickly, so early enrollment is suggested.  Children may be admitted to the class mid-year so long as they meet the age requirements for their class and the class is not at full capacity.
