Christ United Methodist Preschool offers an abundance of care to a broad range of ages to God's biggest joy, children. Starting from six weeks of age to Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK). We are open Monday-Friday from 7:00 AM -6:00 PM. We offer part time and full time care hoping to meet your family's needs. We are open year round besides major holidays and two weeks out of the year - Winter Break (one week) and Spring Break (one week). Please see our school calendar under our Parent's Corner tab.
We are a fully ACCREDITED and GOLD SEAL school. Our accreditation is with the United Methodist Association of Preschools. At CUMP, we are authorized by the Early Learning Coalition of Duval County to provide free Voluntary Pre-Kindergarden (VPK). Our VPK class is Monday - Thursday, 9:00am - 1:00pm which runs from August through May each year.
We use the Wee Learn & Pinnacle Curriculum as our basis for learning. We are a hands-on, learning center-oriented school. Our goal is to have fun learning and growing. We have brought local resources together to create extra curricular activities to our students on a weekly basis. We are blessed to have the chapel around the corner to keep Jesus's name ringing through our hearts.
The purpose for Christ United Methodist Preschool is to be a part of the overall mission of Christ United Methodist Church of Neptune Beach, Florida. CUMP exists as a not for profit outreach to the community by assisting parents with their role as early educators. Our responsibility is to promote a child's growth in spiritual, academic, physical, emotional, and social areas of development. We seek to create a nurturing environment that is safe, healthy and age appropriate for the children in our care. Our goal is to teach children about God's love and prepare each child for a successful transition to an elementary school environment.
