WCUMC Preschool

“Childhood is but a short season, treasuring every moment letting kids be kids!”

About Us/Our Mission:
Wesleyan Chapel UMC Preschool is designed to be a family oriented Preschool for those families in and around our community. Our Preschool’s main objective and responsibility is to provide safe, healthy, nurturing, and responsive settings for the children of our Preschool. We are committed to supporting their development by cherishing individual differences, by promoting self-esteem, by realizing that children develop at their own pace all while believing that children deserve to be just that-children. All of this is accomplished in a loving, caring manner while using art, music, stories, and recreation in our classrooms within our Preschool!

While enrolled at Wesleyan Chapel Preschool, our students will participate in a wide variety of activities from our fall “Hallelujah Hoedown” to kick off the start of the school year right through the year to finish it off with our Preschool Graduation Ceremony. Throughout the year we offer family oriented events for holidays and special events; a special night set aside for just fathers/children; a day set aside for moms/children; school-wide field trips twice a year; Preschool Picture Days; Free Speech Screening for all of our students; Chapel; just to name some of the many activities offered at our Preschool-all while the children are learning and having fun in our classes!
