Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church Preschool is a curriculum-based weekday program for children ages 2-5 for 2015-16 school year. The staff is comprised of dedicated women who love teaching children and love the Lord. Our goal is to provide a loving, safe environment in which a child can grow spiritually, socially, intellectually, physically, and mentally. Opportunities for growth and learning are given to each child through play and a variety of activities. Children learn to trust others, respect others and themselves, and understand the love of Jesus Christ. In addition to developmentally appropriate academics, the children attend Chapel, Music, and Movement weekly. A Christian environment is evident through Bible verses, grace before snacks and meals, respect for others, and love of Jesus Christ. We believe a child’s early school experience should be one full of love, fun, and nurturing.

“It is a very challenging time as a new mother to decide where you might let your child go to preschool. For me as a mother of three boys, there was no doubt where their home would be. Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church Preschool was this place. But for those of you who are not aware of the program, questions remain. Perhaps these are some of your questions…Am I making the best choice for my children? This is so new to me, what do I need to look for? Allow me to let you know, keep asking the questions. Your questions will be answered.

As a mother, we can only hope for a program that understands that these children are sponges, wanting to learn. Learning happens in the smallest ways. Hamilton Mill knows this and thrives on constantly improving the preschool. We have been blessed. to be a part of HMUMC Preschool for seven years.

HMUMC Preschool will welcome your child. The preschool is going to celebrate it’s tenth year. This preschool knows what they are doing. This school continues to share God’s word with these children and as a mother of three boys who has been a part of Hamilton MIll, we are very blessed.”

-Sandra Arnow, preschool parent

“In September of 2005, my oldest child started in the preschool program at HMUMC. Since then, all three of my children have been blessed to have been a part of the program. Hamilton Mill UMC Preschool has been a place for my children to learn about the love of God and to grow excited about learning in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. The teachers and staff at HMUMC Preschool are some of the most dedicated, patient and loving servants of the Lord that I have come across. My children continue to hold a special places in their hearts for each of their teachers. And, as a mother, Hamilton Mill UMC Preschool will always hold a special place in my heart.”
