Washington Street United Methodist Church Preschool accepts families of all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. As a church sponsored program, Christian traditions are emphasized. However, our program also embraces and celebrates other cultural and religious traditions. By sharing customs, ideas, traditions, and meanings, we help promote understanding and acceptance.

Families already in our program must re-enroll their children each year. Currently enrolled children and their siblings are given priority in our program for the next school term as long as they abide by all enrollment policies. Preference also is given to WSUMC families. All other families are admitted as space is available and if necessary by lottery. Please see our Admission Policy for more details. Enrollment Applications will be accepted beginning each December for the upcoming school year and held on file until placement.

Applications are welcome beyond December and children will be placed as space is available. A $65.00 non-refundable application fee must accompany each application for enrollment. In lieu of an Open House, tours are available for prospective families and may be scheduled by appointment with the Director throughout the school year.

Washington Street UMC Preschool is committed to meeting the needs of each enrolled child, and as such, welcomes applications of children with mild disabilities. To discern whether WSUMCP might be an appropriate placement for your child, please schedule a meeting with the Director to discuss your specific situation when applying for enrollment.
