First United Methodist Preschool provides a warm and nurturing, yet challenging, environment in which children
can grow and develop physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Our goal is to provide the opportunity
for children to develop to their full potential, and become confident and eager learners. The attitudes of the staff and
the conditions of the learning environment affirm the value of each child.
The preschool is accredited by the United Methodist Association of Preschools (UMAP) and maintains an annual Religious
Exemption from Licensure by the Commonwealth of Virginia. First United Methodist Preschool does not discriminate on the
basis of gender, race, color, or national/ethnic origin.
All teaching staff of First United Methodist Preschool must be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma, and
a minimum of a Child Development Credential, with either an Associates or Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education
