Preschool

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

Our Preschool has been growing strong for almost 20 years!

After much consideration and for the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, our Preschool is temporarily closed from January 19th with a return date of Monday, February 1st.
We believe this is the best decision in helping us restart in the healthiest way possible.  
For more information about our preschool, please see below and contact
jennifer.markham@hmumc.org
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 2–5 years of age.
