About Us

 The Learning Ark Preschool of FUMC is a faith-based, early education program for children ages 3-5 years that are fully potty trained.

  • Our structured school experience helps to prepare children for an elementary environment.
  • We only offer morning sessions, 8:45 am to 12:00 pm, due to the intensity of our program.
  • As a smaller school, we are able to provide a more personalized focus for each child’s individual level.
  • For the convenience of our families, we follow the Laramie County School District #1 school calendar for holiday and vacation days.
  • We use a faith based curriculum that utilizes learning centers. Some centers are teacher guided while others focus on child-led exploration.
  • Centers include:
    • Science & Sensory
    • Math & Manipulatives
    • Literacy
    • Language
    • Blocks
    • Dramatic Play
    • Creative Arts
    • Music
  • Daily Bible stories that help develop a basic faith and Christian character traits. No theology is taught so it is inclusive of all Christian beliefs.
  • A multi-language format is used with letters, numbers and colors.
  • Certified, kind and caring staff
  • High standards of cleanliness and safety are maintained throughout the facility.
  • Fun, new activities every single day! We provide a broad spectrum of learning opportunities so that every child has an opportunity to learn in their own way.
  • Learning assessments are done twice each year to assess Kindergarten readiness and progress.
  • Weekly, one page newsletters delivered to your inbox help you keep up on everything your child is doing at school. Fun class pictures help you see exactly what your child did that week.

What Our Families are Saying

“The Learning Ark Preschool is a fantastic school. My child absolutely loves going, and learns new activities and concepts every day he attends!”

My little girl attended this preschool for the 2019-2020 school year and she absolutely LOVED it. I was very apprehensive about leaving my little one because I am a stay at home mother and she had never been to any type of daycare or even to a babysitter! However this school put my fears to rest by providing an enriching, safe Christian environment that my daughter loved! Miss Angela was absolutely wonderful with all of the kiddos and taught them so much this year. I would like to thank First United Methodist Church and Miss Angela for giving my little girl such a positive preschool experience with The Learning Ark Preschool.”
