The purpose of East Brentwood Presbyterian Church Preschool is to nurture a child’s early childhood experience by providing a Christian environment that enhances learning and promotes development of the child. The preschool will provide educational opportunities that will help the child develop into the whole person God intends, both individually and within the context of community.
A child’s preschool years are very important to his/her development and we are honored to be a part of that growth. At our preschool, your child will have the opportunity to participate in chapel, art, music, learning centers, physical activity, quiet time, and free play time.
These experiences will vary according to your child’s age. We have been awarded 3 stars (the highest rating available) by the State of Tennessee for excellence in childcare every year since their program began. This is our 13th year of operation.
We provide small classes for children from age two to five, with a cut- off date of September 30, which is the same for all Williamson County Schools. The programs are child-focused. The content and teaching practices are guided by the developmental needs of each child (including social, cognitive, moral, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs). This environment places a high value on the child as an individual, while promoting the social skills necessary to flourish in a community of mutual respect.
East Brentwood Presbyterian Church Preschool may not have the resources to meet the needs of all children. Because our primary interest is the welfare and success of each child, we are limited in the number of children that we can successfully serve and may not be able to accommodate the special needs of all children.
EBPC Preschool is Peanut/Nut Free! We have a number of children who are extremely allergic to various foods, the most severe of which are to peanut/nuts. Therefore, we ask that you not send peanut butter sandwiches, cookies, crackers, etc. in your childs lunch. Each classroom will have a list of the children who have allergies and what they are. We ask that you be aware of these allergies when sending in birthday snacks or holiday treats. Mothers of these children are very aware of their childrens special dietary needs and are more than willing to help you identify appropriate foods. Please read the labels on products before you send in food items. We have found that soy and sun butter looks and tastes like peanut butter. If you use this product please send us a note in the lunch box identifying it as soy or sun butter rather than peanut butter, otherwise we send peanut butter sandwiches, etc. back home! We have found Dads and/or visiting relatives (who only make lunches occasionally) make most lunch box mistakes. Please be sure to inform them of our food issues!
The curriculum in the 4/5s is Handwriting Without Tears (HWT). It has won the Distinguished Achievement Award for best childrens curriculum as well as a Teachers Choice award from Learning Magazine. Handwriting Without Tears is a simple, developmentally based curriculum for writing readiness, printing and cursive. The multi-sensory lessons teach to all learning styles- visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic. It is also a comprehensive curriculum, covering science, reading and math. And best of all, it has the children up and out of their seats, counting, dancing and singing!
At our annual Kindergarten Forum, local kindergarten teachers talk about the difficulty that many kindergartners have with handwriting. They pointed out that while children in kindergarten were learning to read fairly quickly, when they tried writing, they had a very difficult time. This was especially true with boys, who as a rule dont spend as much time practicing their handwriting skills. In fact it was observed that many children with handwriting difficulties were attempting to draw the letters rather than write them: a very labor-intensive process! They would then get behind and get frustrated. All of our 4/5s teachers have had the HWT training and we have used this curriculum for several years now and are very pleased with the results.
