Great Beginnings Preschool - Leesburg United Methodist Church

We offer a warm, caring preschool program for children ages 2-5 from 9:00AM-12:00PM.

As a mission of Leesburg United Methodist Church we have provided a warm, caring and nurturing preschool program for the children of our community for over 50 years. We recognize that children learn best when they are given opportunities to discover, explore and problem solve through direct experience. We emphasize Christian concepts and a developmental curriculum to enhance physical and intellectual growth and prepare children for kindergarten.

Happy Valentine’s Day Sunbeams! ❤️❤️

Kindergarten registration begins next week! Here’s some helpful information from LCPS:

The two-step process of enrolling students for kindergarten in Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) begins Tuesday, February 18.

On this date, parents may begin the pre-registration process. Eligible children must turn 5 years old on or before September 30, 2020. Parents must verify their school attendance zone. This can be done by visiting https://webinter.lcps.org/Lcps_Locate/. Once parents know which school their child will attend, they may visit https://portal.lcps.org to create a ParentVue account and complete the pre-registration forms. Paper packets of pre-registration forms are available in school offices for families without internet access.

After the pre-registration is complete, parents will be directed to contact their school to schedule a registration appointment. Registration appointments will start on Wednesday, March 18. Parents must bring the following documentation with them to the registration appointment:

• An original birth certificate or a certified copy;
• Proof of legal guardianship or legal custody if not the parent
of the student;
• Proof of Loudoun County residency or of parents/guardians
sharing a home with a Loudoun County resident;
• Immunization record;
• Tuberculosis screening requirements;
• Physical for new elementary school students; and
• A Photo ID.

Parents who have registered their children will be invited to a kindergarten orientation. Dates of orientation events vary by school.

For more information about Kindergarten Registration, please visit https://www.lcps.org/StudentRegistration.

Happy happy birthday to this bright shining Sunbeam! Birthday girl and one of our Busy Bees helped me during chapel today!!
❤️❤️

Wear pink tomorrow to celebrate the color of the month!

Lots of great things happening at GBP today! Amazing fine motor reinforcement to strengthen those hands for writing, beginning letter sounds practice and more! In music, the Monkeys and Bears listened to “Tweety tweet tweet” and “5 Fingers” by Nancy Kopman to get those hands and fingers moving. We can’t wait to share a Valentine song we’ve been working on during Special Chapel at the end of the month!

It’s Monday! Time to rise and SHINE!!!

Happy birthday to a special Owl and Bear! Library day for the Owls!!! #birthdayselfies #GBPshinesBRIGHT

What a great explanation!!! Crossing the midline even appears in the exercises I do as an adult! Such great growth and development happens when we’re at play!!

Children with poor crossing the midline skills, often have trouble:

* Putting their own shoes and socks on
* Tracking words across the page during reading time without fidgeting or getting distracted
* Completing jigsaw puzzles with their dominant hand, if the puzzle is positioned on the opposite side of their body
* Climbing a-frames safely (climbing up forwards, and climbing down backwards)
* Sitting cross-legged during circle time

To be able to understand the position and movement of our own body; be able to move and turn quickly while playing; or master complex fine motor skills, we need to firstly master crossing the midline, and bilateral coordination skills.

Special Chapel tomorrow for our MW Monkeys, MWF Bears and Bees! T/TH Monkeys, T/TH Bears and Owls on Thursday! Excited to see you there!
