Local church offers Christian-based schooling ministry
CFUMC-prek-vert-IMG 7102
With a Christian Bible-based curriculum, the Conyers United Methodist Preschool has been educating young people for more than 30 years. When asked what is the difference between Christian and secular pre-school programs, Karen Dimsdale, director of the program, said, "We focus on the word of God and teach children that they matter to us and to God and that we are all born with a purpose. We strive to give students the best education and nurturing environment possible. We are a school that cares about our children. Our preschool is more than just a business but a mission first and foremost."

Dimsdale, who attended the program as a child, said, "We offer our students a very good education. We have two teachers with over 18 years of experience. Our teachers are certified. We use the Jack and Jilly curriculum, which is used by the public schools and expose our students to reading at 3 years old. Also, we offer a literacy and music program, library time, field trips around Conyers, Spanish for the 4 year olds and kindergartners, and computer lab, along with Bible time which focuses on lessons from characters in the Bible."

Even though, Conyers United is a Christian based preschool, many participants are not necessarily Christians.

"Many parents who are "un-churched" are drawn to the church, because their children are happy. When they (the children) walk through these doors they are safe."

Even though the kindergarten program has already started, the pre-school is still registering new students on Aug. 17 and 18. School is in session from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and is located at 921 N. Main St.
