Great Beginnings Preschool - Leesburg United Methodist Church

We offer a warm, caring preschool program for children ages 2-5 from 9:00AM-12:00PM.

As a mission of Leesburg United Methodist Church we have provided a warm, caring and nurturing preschool program for the children of our community for over 50 years. We recognize that children learn best when they are given opportunities to discover, explore and problem solve through direct experience. We emphasize Christian concepts and a developmental curriculum to enhance physical and intellectual growth and prepare children for kindergarten.

Last night we tried to record Waffle Man so we could see him make his chrysalis..sadly we ran out of battery. But we woke up to another chrysalis!
Now Branch, Ella, Star and Waffle are wrapped up tight. And A-B is still eating!

Waffle Man is our only hanging friend without a chrysalis! A-B is still eating!
Rest up Branch, Ella and Star!

Happy happy birthday to this cutie Bears! 🎁😘❤️🎂❤️

Kids Master Skills

Those of us who work with children know that movement breaks can make a big difference in a child's learning!

Research shows that short-term, intense physical exercise yields positive gains in attention, and longer-term exercise programs improve a child's executive function (de Greeff et al., 2018). Also, school engagement increases when children are having fun (Owen et al., 2018) - yet another reason to safely incorporate movement into children's daily life.

Our furry crew is HUGE!!!
