Hawthorne Lane Preschool is a through the week children’s ministry at Hawthorne Lane United Methodist Church. The purpose of this program is to provide a safe, Christian learning environment where preschool children learn about God’s world and God’s love through teaching and hands-on experience.

Our Goal
We welcome your child to Hawthorne Lane Preschool.  We are committed to the best learning environment possible for your child.  It’s important to help children become enthusiastic learners.  Our curriculum will focus in all areas of development including spiritual, social, emotional, cognitive and physical. Our daily program will include hands-on experience, play, art, music, language and Christian growth.

This is a Christian preschool but, true to the highest Christian principles, it is respectful and welcoming to people of all – or no – faith traditions.  We are committed to supporting our children and their families. We will be communicating regularly and often with you regarding our subjects of study and our activities as well as our policies.  Everything will be done with the best interest of the children foremost and will   be guided by the principle of Christian love.  All children are welcome in the preschool and we believe people of all faiths will find our pre-school to be a caring, affirming, creative learning center.
