My 4 yr-old twins attend the best preschool in Wichita. It is the preschool at the first united methodist church downtown. The church is located on Broadway (it runs up Broadway on 1st, 2nd and 3rd street). It is just wonderful! It was the first and still one of the only nationally accredited schools, it' cheap, and all of the teachers are certified teachers with many years of experience. The teacher for the 4 year olds is named Mrs. Post. She will teach your child to read, and will totally prepare him for all of the kindergarten entrance exams. This school takes field trips, does lessons in science, reading, math, and social skills. They have special programs almost every month, special programs for Mother's day, father's day and christmas. Yes, it is a church run preschool, and that can put off some, but while religion is introduced to the children, it is more of the we help each other and take care of each other variety. The kids all help other children who are less fortunate, the donate to the food bank, take up collections for coats and mittens, etc. I can't believe how much my girls love this school and how much they have learned. They are already enrolled for next year. You can go MWF, T-TH, or all 5 days. My girls went 2 days last year and will go three days next year. The director's name is Brianna Voght. She is wonderful. Parents are encouraged and welcome to tour and to participate or be involved in anyway they want. Give them a try, you'll be glad.
