From the Pastor
Welcome to the Flora United Methodist Play School, an outreach ministry of our church where every child is important and loved.
The Bible says: "Let the little children come."It also says "Train a child in the direction they should go (emotionally, physically, and spiritually) and they will not depart from it.
It is our goal to help prepare your child socially and mentally for the journey through the educational levels of life and to help plant seeds of faith for spiritual growth in proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
With this mindset, we have limited the number of children that can be enrolled each year.We want to keep the teacher/student ratio low, thus giving more personal time spent with each child.
We value each child and pledge to nurture them with Christian love.We appreciate the trust that you have placed in us and are pleased to have you as part of our Preschool.May it be a rewarding experience for all concerned.
In Christ Love,
Pastor Jeff Landon
