A Message from our Director

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the First United Methodist Preschool of Lake Wales. I am proud to serve as Director and feel fortunate to have such a dedicated and talented staff working with me to make this Preschool one of the best in Polk County.

We are so glad that you have chosen us to be a part of your child’s educational and spiritual life. By working together, at home and at school, we will strive to meet the needs of your child as he or she encounters new learning experiences and adjusts to the preschool environment through out the year.

I want to stress the importance of reading our Parent Handbook so that you will be aware of the policies and procedures that we use as guidelines of our preschool. If you fulfill this obligation, it will make for a better school year for you and your child.

My door is always open to you so please do not hesitate to come to me with concerns or questions. Let’s work together in Christian harmony and make this one of the best school years of your child’s life!

Your partner in Education,

Tracy Kinney
