Welcome to CUMC PreSchool

PreSchool COVID-19 Update

During our extended closure, we would like to make every effort to stay in touch with our preschool family. We will be adding classroom newsletters to our webpage so that families may receive encouragement from our teachers, as well as find activities and bible references to help us work through this unusual time. Please, check this page often, as well as follow our Facebook posts by CUMC Pre-School. Please, feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, or prayer requests. We miss everyone greatly and look forward to returning to preschool. In the meantime, we are praying for each one of you!

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.

If you have a child between the ages of 6 weeks - 4 years old and are interested in joining our preschool family, we would love to give you more information on registering your child for our preschool classes.
