Our Facilities

We are proud of our facilities. Each classroom is spacious and has adjoining restrooms. We have a fenced-in playground with age-appropriate equipment, a sandbox and a playhouse. Large trees provide adequate shade and a peaceful environment for outdoor play.

For inclement weather days, there is an additional spacious room for rhythmic and muscle building activities – this is our hugely popular Green Room. We believe in daily physical activity and free play for children. At the Wesley Center children always have a place to run and climb.

Our Purpose

The purpose of Wesley Center Pre-School is to provide a stimulating environment for young children where they can develop spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically. The school strives to build a foundation of experiences from which the children will be able to draw meaningful information as they make sense out of the world around them. The school provides a safe and loving atmosphere in which the children feel free to make choices and take risks in their process of learning. Through a varied and flexible program each child will build a positive concept of self and others while nurturing a joy in the wonders of the world in which he/she lives.
Wesley Center Pre-School admits students of any race, religion or national origin.

Our Philosophy

Wesley Center Pre-School recognizes that each child has unique talents and interests. A wide variety of activities are made available so that children may explore and learn about themselves and the world around them. We believe that encouraging children to make choices for themselves develops self-motivation. Developing social skills is a very important part of our curriculum. Qualities such as kindness, fairness, cooperation and honesty are modeled and encouraged. Communication skills are also practiced so that children become articulate, confident speakers and attentive listeners.
Multi-culturalism is incorporated so that differences become exciting and interesting. We want all children to appreciate and respect all fellow human beings.

Wesley Center is non-denominational. We say a “grace” before snacks, with reference to “God”. We celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Valentine’s Day, Passover, Chinese New Year and any other holiday that parents are willing to share with us.
