The education and nurture of children is a Biblical command, and the ministries of CUMC honor this command with the utmost care. Our goal at Chapin UMC Preschool is to provide your child with trained, godly teachers and a nurturing, Christian environment allowing children to grow and discover new things. We strive to develop the whole child: physically, spiritually, socially, intellectually, and emotionally.
