The public is invited to come to Tipp City United Methodist Church Great Hall on Wednesday, April 26, to view works of the student-artists. The exhibit is open from 5 pm until 7 pm. During the exhibit a spaghetti & meatball meal, to include chicken nuggets, salad and dessert too, will be served between 5-6:30 p.m. Carryout is available. Family $15 or single $5. Raffle packages filled with gift cards and specialty items will be on display to view and purchase tickets during the dinner also. Proceeds will fund The Miracle on Main Street project that happens this summer at the preschool. The congregation and preschool families will lend many hands to create a more progressive learning environment going forward into the 21st century.

The staff at Main Street Preschool in downtown Tipp City believes that art enhances the lives of children. Through art, children expand their decision-making, inventiveness, cultural awareness, and academic performance. As student-artists, they learn self-control and progressive thinking that will benefit them well for life.

Tipp City United Methodist Church is located at the corner of 3d & Main Streets. The facility is handicap accessible. The student-artists are anxious to show their talent to their families and the public.

Main Street Preschool is planning an Open House for Sunday, February 26 between 2 and 3 pm.  Stop by to meet the staff and visit the classrooms.  Register your child(ren) for one of the classes available for the 2017-2018 school year.  We recommend registering early to hold the option you prefer.

Located at the corner of 3d and Main Streets in downtown Tipp City, the preschool offers consecutive days of learning for ages 2 ½  through 5.  One, two, three, and four-day class options are available.  The ever-popular, after-school Lunch Bunch opportunity allows for children to stay an extra hour or two to eat lunch with friends and continue learning classroom concepts while participating in children-directed activities.  Licensed by the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services, Main Street Preschool opened in 2005.

Tipp City Fire Department brought a fire truck for the children to see. During the next weeks the children had a chance to dress up like firefighters and act out some of the situations they learned about. This is an example of multisensory learning which is incorporated in Main Street Preschool’s curriculum.

Children who stay for the after-school optional program enjoyed the beautiful autumn afternoon outside.  Leaves were all around and they decided to rake them into a pile so they could play in it.  They realized that after working together to make the pile there was plenty of time to play together.  Lunch Bunch offers children opportunities to talk about and agree on activities they would like to do together.

Main Street Preschool opened its doors the day after Labor Day. With the beautiful late summer weather, the children spent time in the outdoor classroom, the Play Garden.  Lots of learning and playing happens there.  It’s an ideal space to work on motor skills—large and small.  And the added benefit is lots of sunshine and fresh air.

“Developmentally appropriate education for preschoolers involves using all the senses, but especially the main four: moving (kinesthetic), touching (tactile), seeing (visual) and listening (auditory). A Chinese proverb sums up what many of us know: Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand. This is especially true for young children. They learn by doing and exploring and testing theories—in other words, playing. Playing and exploring involves using many senses at the same time,” according to teacher Lori Jans. During a week or two in the 3-year-old class, the Hikers learn about bears. They found a “cave” in the classroom full of stuffed bears! The teacher read Bear Snores On during the meeting time. This sweet book tells the story of a hibernating bear whose cave becomes a warm gathering place for other forest animals. The children were able to bring the book to life by using the cave as a stage to reenact the story. They enjoyed retelling the story with their snack of animal crackers and ice cream cone caves.

Pastor Dan explained “The Great 2015 Christmas Challenge.” We will partner with the church to bring in 10,000 pounds of foods until Christmas Eve to be donated to Needy Basket of Southern Miami Co in Tipp City. Since 2007, Main Street Preschool has donated jars of jelly and other food items to Needy Basket as a service project. Some of the teachers continued a discussion about food. The children learned the song “Aikendrum” about the man who lives in the moon and plays upon a ladle. Each part of his body is made of food. The students discovered whether each piece of food came from an animal or grew on a plant.
