Cumberland UMC Preschool

Cumberland UMC Preschool functions as a ministry to the community on behalf of Cumberland United Methodist Church. Established in 2000, Cumberland UMC Preschool was founded by a small group of dedicated church members who recognized the need for a quality church-based preschool in the surrounding community. The preschool is designed to provide children with age appropriate learning experiences that will enhance their continuing growth and development.

Mission: The mission of Cumberland UMC Preschool is to provide quality early childhood education and care that will nurture our preschool students spiritually, academically and socially in an environment where Jesus Christ and His Kingdom are placed first. We strive to help develop well rounded children who are happy, secure, confident and eager to learn. The preschool has remained true to those standards, strengthening them as the program expanded.

Today we showed our appreciation for our teachers with a massage and candle warmers!! Thank you for all your donations to help make this week so amazing for our teachers!!

Today we gave the teachers glass drink dispensers filled with drink mixes!! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!

[03/26/17]   A reminder to the parents of the 3 year old Caterpillar Class. All permission slips and $10 field trip fees are due tomorrow, Monday, March 27th. The field trip to Megaplay in Spring Lake is, Tuesday, March 28th. Thank you!

[03/20/17]   Thank you to all of the preschoolers, parents, relatives and friends that were able to make it to Cumberland UMC Preschool's - Preschool Sunday. The kids did an amazing job and their performance was a joy to see. As always, we appreciate your participation in all of our activities. Without all of us collectively, our events would not be the success that they are.


Carter-Groves Photography will take our school pictures again this spring. All preschoolers will have their pictures taken on Thursday, April 13th; individual and classes. There will be a proof package sent home, so you pay nothing initially, but then order what you want based on the proofs. Sample photographs with background will be posted outside the 2 year old class and the 3 & 4 year old hallway at the beginning of April. It is optional to buy any package, however, the preschool makes a percentage of the photographer’s profits.
(The Preschool Press, March 2017, incorrectly stated the pictures would be taken on Wednesday, April 13th. The day of the week is Thursday, April 13th.)

[03/16/17]   The field trip permission slips and $8.00 for the Butterflies four-year preschool class to LaFayette Bowling Lanes is due Monday, March 20th, 2017.
