Welcome from the Head of School
It is with great enthusiasm that I invite you to spend time on our website getting to know The Woodlands Methodist School where we guide and nurture children, Toddlers through 8th grade. You will see an environment where students are challenged to be independent thinkers, to explore new ideas, to take risks with courage and enthusiasm, to serve their communities with passion and commitment and to lead others with confidence and integrity. And, you will see how our remarkable faculty and staff make this happen each and every day.
Our rich Chapel program instills strong moral Christian values which serve as the foundation for strong character development of the individuals our students will become.
As the Head of School, I am both humbled and honored to lead our School community, and I cannot adequately describe the privilege of working with our exceptional faculty and staff. Wherever I look, I see evidence of the great work they do. We are committed to providing the best in education. You will find excellence in our programs and creativity in our enrichment activities from Toddlers through 8th grade. I invite you to visit The Woodlands Methodist School, to see for yourself what a special place we are. And, I look forward to personally welcoming you and your family to campus.

Welcome from the Executive Director of Child Development
Welcome! I am pleased to introduce you to the cornerstone of our exceptional programs for children. Our Preschool/Children of The Woodlands has been providing high-quality early care and education in our community for more than three decades.
As an outreach program of The Woodlands United Methodist Church, our accredited Christian preschool is well known for our developmental, hands-on philosophy, low child-staff ratios, excellent teachers, and wonderful facilities.
We believe, and research supports, that young children learn best when they are actively involved in the process, and that play is a child’s most important work. When we say “hands-on” learning, we mean that children are using materials and manipulatives to increase their knowledge. For example, building with a set of wooden blocks teaches physics and engineering principles, and when you add a friend to the process the children begin to learn about cooperation, collaboration and problem solving.
Learning in preschool should be fun and purposeful-we want to develop a lifelong love of learning! But learning in preschool is also very intentional. Taking cues from the children, our teachers develop lesson plans to engage and challenge the students. Each day at our Preschool/Children of The Woodlands, our young learners have the chance to explore new activities in the classroom, hear and discuss a story, share a prayer and learn a bit about God, enjoy lunch with their classmates, and engage in outdoor and indoor active play.
I am passionate about early childhood education, and love working with children and families during this exciting time of growth. I look forward to showing you our very special school.
