Community Connections


Hickory Flat UMC Preschool and Kindergarten are dedicated to being an active and supportive member of the Hickory Flat, Canton, and Woodstock communities. Throughout the year we offer many opportunities for families and businesses to feel welcome and encouraged to join in that mission.



Community Outreach


Our school feels very strongly about teaching children the importance of giving. We have three to four community outreach programs each year that call upon our families to use these opportunities to teach their children about why we give to others. We vary our outreaches so that many different groups in our “back yard” may feel the benefits of this important lesson. All outreaches are geared toward children and seek items that children can relate to such as Angel Tree, Thanksgiving food drive, school supply drive for local chidrend in need, etc.


This part of our program strongly supports and is an introduction to missions. Children are never too young to begin to understand the importance of thinking outside their own worlds.
