Welcome to CUMC PreSchool

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 Christian, nurturing environment in which to grow and discover new things. We strive to develop the whole child: physically, spiritually, socially, intellectually, and emotionally.

**Please note: Our Mother’s Morning Out is for children too young to attend the 2 year preschool class. MMO is a structured program that introduces developmentally appropriate activities such as music, movement, story time, art, and more. MMO children participate in generous portions of free play and enjoy snacks, as well.

In addition to normally scheduled activities such as circle time, table time, recess, snacks, music, and art, our preschoolers participate in these other activities: 

Chapel: Once weekly children age 2 – 4 gather together in our Fusion Center where they hear a brief, age-appropriate children’s message from one of our CUMC Staff members. Chapel time also includes singing and prayer. 

Library Reading Day: Once monthly, our local librarian comes to CUMC Preschool to read, sing, and move with our preschoolers.
