Beth has been with Weaver for 4 years, and she says that her favorite part about teaching is being able to watch the character come out in her students, as they grow up and move on to the older classes.
About being appointed as our new Director, Beth says, “I have been teaching preschool for over 20 years, and am so proud to be the new Director for Weaver Preschool. It has been my dream for 15 years, to lead a church preschool, and now my dream has come true! I have been blessed with many blessings in my life, and I continue to receive what God has planned for me, which continues to be more than I ever could have imagined.” Beth stays on her toes as a mother of two; Sarah - 15yrs, and Cannon - 9yrs old, and as a business owner of “Heritage Realty.” We are so happy to have her as a strong and capable leader in this important ministry!

Weaver Preschool, a ministry of Cole Memorial United Methodist Church, encourages our children's spiritual and emotional development through interactive experiences and play in a Christian environment.
Philosophy of Education
At Weaver Preschool, each child will be nurtured in his or her understanding of God, in social relationships and language, physically, emotionally, and cognitively. Learning will be fostered through play, with an emphasis on art, creativity, and music. We believe that guided, developmentally appropriate play provides a strong foundation for future learning.
Our program will provide a busy, hands-on environment that takes advantage of what children do naturally: explore the world around them through play. Play requires active thinking, experimenting, and problem solving. Through these direct, interactive experiences, children grow across all areas of development. As children are guided to work and play together, they learn to take initiative and make decisions, cooperate with others, follow instructions, and think of themselves as capable persons.
Our program will incorporate stories, art, music, Bible verses and stories, role playing and drama, age appropriate language, math and science experiences, movement activities and outdoor play, and special enrichment programs.
The staff at Weaver Preschool will love and respect each child, knowing that as children are loved and respected they will in turn love and respect others. In our safe and nurturing environment, children will be encouraged to express themselves as individuals, and develop in their own time. We will value each child as a unique and precious gift from God.
