Early Childhood Center

Haddonfield United Methodist Early Childhood Center (HUMECC) is the combination of the Infant and Toddler and Preschool programs, and is an excellent childcare center for your family.

Whether you are a Mom who needs some time in the morning or looking for a Pre-K program, HUMECC is ready to help!

Our Mission

The purpose of the Haddonfield United Methodist Early Childhood Center (HUMECC) is to help each child develop to the fullest of their own potential in an atmosphere of love and trust, of acceptance and understanding. We provide a nurturing atmosphere, follow Christian principles, and encourage Christian values.

Philosophy

Through play, the child discovers himself/herself and his/her relationships to other people, animals, and things. Through creative activities, he/she stretches the imagination and and stimulates his/her creative development. The encouragement and development of rational thinking, fair play, self reliance and individual freedom are all part of the HUMECC objectives.

HUMECC is approved by the State of New Jersey, Division of Youth and Family Services based on equipment, personnel, class routine, and sanitation and fire prevention.

The program develops around the interests of the children, using language arts, math, social studies, science, music, and art. We believe the individual child should have his curiosity aroused, his horizons expanded and his experiences broadened.

All HUMECC curriculum is implemented by age appropriate activities including pre-reading and pre-math concepts, drama and music activities, fine and gross motor activities, and social relationships.

Two outdoor play areas are available to the children as well as an indoor play area to be used during inclement weather.

Infant/Toddler Classes – 1 and 2 years old

Our infant and toddler classes are designed for children who are one and two years old. We strive to promote socialization skills and prepare the children for short separations from their parents and an introduction to basic school routines. This is achieved using creative hands on experiences with a loving and nurturing staff.

Preschool

Preschool – 3 to 6 years old

The Preschool is for children 3 to 6 years old, including 3 and 4 year old programs, Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Enrichment. The program continues to develop the interests of the child using language arts, math, social studies, science, music, and art. We concentrate on developing self-confidence and mastering early learning skills. We continue towards academic preparedness and independence.
