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 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.

If you have any questions, you may contact Mary Catherine Horne (Director)
