As a parent you are interested in preparing your child for future progress in school. A child’s social development is a key factor that contributes to academic success in school and leads to a happy, productive life.

It is with this common interest in children that the Zanesville United Methodist Church, in 1980, began a Preschool program. This program is open to children of all faiths.

Policies and procedures are under the supervision of the Preschool’s Board. This Board is comprised of local church members, parents, and professionals.

Classes are supervised and taught by experienced and caring Christian teachers, holding Certificates in Preschool Education.

Total Enrollment and Class size is limited to allow teachers to observe each child and adjust the program to meet individual needs.

The curriculum is comprised of large and fine motor development, early math and reading readiness skills, songs, stories, finger plays, and social interactions.

Parents are responsible for providing transportation for their children to and from Preschool. The school must be notified in writing of transportation changes throughout the year.

Children must be toilet trained and able to take care of their own toilet needs. (No diapers or pull-up diapers)

Immunizations should be updated prior to the opening of class.

Pre-school graduation
ZUM Preschool wraps up the school year with a graduation ceremony. The children put on a play (e.g. A Grumpy Morning), sing songs and received their diplomas. A video of the kids learning, playing and enjoying filed trips is presented (and provided to parents on a CD). A “cookies and punch” reception follows the ceremony.

Registrations are now being accepted for next year. A limited number of spaces are available and are filling quickly. If interested in registering your child, or if you have any questions about the program, please call the Church office at 260-638-4108.  Click the following link if you would like to download a copy of the preschool registration. 2017-2018 Preschool Registration Brochure
