OUR RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY
FUMPers is a Christian school that is open to children and families of all
faiths. Our message is God loves us and looks after us. This idea is relayed
daily and emphasized during weekly chapel services.
Our program is exemplified by the following characteristics, which we
believe are vital to
positive growth in a young child:
Developmental: Our theme based curriculum is based upon the
individual needs and interests of the children. A weekly Bible Story Chapel
Time is presented in age appropriate language.
Positive: Interactions and activities are utilized to develop
feelings of worth and dignity.
Safe: Staffing, equipment, and space are arranged to facilitate the
safety of children.
Carefully Staffed: The program is staffed with Christian preschool
teachers who are appropriately trained, competent, and loving. A weekly
music class is led by a trained music instructor.
Well Equipped: Indoor and outdoor equipment is challenging and
