"Our daughter is in her 4th year at the Day School, and our son
is in his first. We could not be happier with this place!!
The teachers and other staff members all care so much about
their students and do an amazing job of helping them learn
and grow. Both of our children love to go to school and are
excited to be there every day. We are so thankful to have found
such a wonderful place for them." —Amanda Morrisse
"This is our first year at Day School. A friend recommended the
school to us and after touring, we immediately decided to enroll
our daughter. We love the Day School. My daughter (2.5 yrs. old)
wants to go EVERY day. Teachers are nice and caring and the office
staff is responsive and patient. If you're looking for another loving
home and great learning environment for your little one,
this the right place." —Rachana Cherry
FUMC Hurst Day School is shaping the future! Our purpose is to provide an exemplary educational program for infants, toddlers and pre-school children in a positive, Christian environment. Qualified and committed staff meet the needs of the whole child by providing learning experiences that encourage the physical, social, emotional, spiritual and cognitive development of each child.
Developmentally-appropriate curriculum for each age group is taught by two teachers and is designed to build upon skills learned at the previous level. Children are encouraged to explore the world in which they live and, through a variety of activities, pursue the development of all their basic skills—from muscular coordination to language ability. Large motor skill development is especially important for young children. A fenced playground designed for preschoolers is available for all children during their physical education time. An indoor playroom is used on inclement weather days. Music and movement are also part of the classroom curriculum.
To enhance spiritual development, the children participate in a brief chapel time. The chapel service consists of a short lesson, songs, and a prayer.
All teachers receive 24 hours of training and continuing education in early childhood. Teachers in the Four Year Old Pre–K class have teaching certification.
