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.

The Bears invited me to join them at snack time for Friendship Fruit Salad and they sang Happy Birthday! It was a great day!

Lots of fun happenings at GBP/LUMC! The stump was removed on Wirt Street thanks to Mr. Matt Lamb! Our Little Free Library was installed thanks to Mr. Alton Echols and Mr. Dave Ditka. A couple of our Sunbeams helped me weed around Wirt Street and supervise the guys (it was a tough job but they did great! 😉).
And today, shade umbrellas were put together on the playground by high school seniors completing their Capstone Project.

Our caterpillars are wrapped up tight for their short spring “nap”...can’t wait to meet (and name) our butterflies!
