At Central UMC Preschool, we strive to keep Christ at the center of all we do!

We are a Registered, Faith-Based preschool that serves children of ages 3 months through 4K.  All of our 3K and 4K teachers are SC certified teachers.  When students graduate our program, they are well prepared for Kindergarten.  We seek to educate the whole child (spirit, mind and body) in an environment that is safe, secure and loving.
