FUMC Preschool Ministry offers classes for children ages 2, 3 and 4 years old.  We offer Weekday Preschool from 9am-12pm and have classes that meet various days during the week based on the specific class.  We open our registration to our current students in February, and then following that, we open our registration to the community.  If you think you may be interested in enrolling your child in our programs, we advise calling as soon as possible to get on our wait list.  


Our classes are as follows:

2-Year-Olds: 2 day option (Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday) or 4 days (Monday-Thursday)


3-Year-Olds: 3 day option (Tuesday-Thursday) or 4 day option (Monday-Thursday

We also offer a lunch bunch each day until 1pm. Students can bring a lunchbox and eat with their classmates for an additional hour to the school day. An extra fee does apply to lunch bunch. 


Fun facts about the preschool:  First UMC began offering weekday education to children in the community in the 1960s by providing a weekday Kindergarten class.  When the state started their own Kindergarten program, First Methodist Church began the Weekday Preschool.  When the preschool started, there was 18 children in one class.  During the 1980s, 30 students attended two separate classes, and the preschool now serves over 60 children in the church and community.




Preschool Summer Camp: A 10-week program from 9am-1pm Monday-Thursday for 2-year-olds through 4-year-olds.
