Preschool

A loving place to learn, play and plant seeds of faith.

Our Preschool has been growing strong for 21 years!

We are dedicated to providing a loving Christian environment in which children experience positive “hands-on” learning
that encourages spiritual, social, intellectual, physical and mental development.  
Hamilton Mill UMC Preschool is a curriculum-based weekday program for children ages 12 months – 5 years of age.
