Welcome to Chester United Methodist Church Preschool

 

Wondering how to secure your child’s spot for next year during this time of social distancing?  You can still send an email to preschool@chesterumc.org or call (804) 748-2275 to have any questions answered or to enroll.  

CUMCPS is a fun-filled half day program that focuses on building well rounded little Christians. We have the wonderful opportunity to teach not only the academics, but to teach the importance of faith and what it means to know and love God.  We start our day in Chapel with a Bible lesson that we build upon throughout the week.

Our preschool exemplifies excellence in developmentally appropriate academic skills, creative learning, creative play, socialization, and various resources.  Our experienced, trained, caring teachers and staff strive to nurture the creativity and individuality of each child.  We truly feel that God places children in our classrooms to teach and love each child individually.  We are blessed to be a part of forming children’s faith in God and Jesus Christ.

CUMC Preschool experience includes:

  • Delightful friendly environment
  • Daily chapel lessons taught by preschool and church staff 
  • Weekly music class with certified music teacher
  • Seasonal music programs for family and friends to attend and enjoy
  • Monthly interactive story time 
  • Parent guided fall and spring field trips
  • School wide and individual classroom celebrations throughout the year
  • Our drop off/pick up system provides parents daily interaction with the director, teachers and staff to ensure open communication.
  • Private social media access to pictures and videos

The mission of CUMCPS is to develop each child to his/her fullest potential spiritually and academically.  This ministry of CUMC is a way to bring the gospel to the children, allowing them to be rooted in God, to grow in Christ and bear fruit of the Spirit.

Here's what people are saying about us...

" CUMCPS is not just a preschool it's a family. The well qualified staff is just the start. They go above and beyond on making you feel a part of this amazing place. The last five years our girls not only learned a tremendous amount but were cared for by some of the most kind hearted and gentle spirited people we've ever met. We look forward to our sixth and final year at CUMCPS. "

"I would recommend CUMCPS. I feel our child over the last two years has really bloomed and matured. It has also been amazing the things she has learned. I feel the security plan in place works very well. I have never had any issues about who will be picking up my child or concerns about her safety."
