Ebenezer Preschool is Closed

Due to the Governor's COVID-19 action plan, Ebenezer Preschool is closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. Our teachers are emailing lesson plans and creating videos to ensure learning continues at home. Please contact your child's teacher or our director, Donna Kenkel, with any questions.

2020-2021 Preschool Enrollment

Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year is open. Enrollment forms are posted below.

FYI: We will follow SCPS and will begin school in August 2020. Orientation will be August 13 & August 14 (depending on your child’s day), and the first day of school will be August 17 & August 18 (depending on your child’s day).

Welcome to Ebenezer UMC Preschool

Children develop at their optimum potential when they feel their needs for love and security are met. We provide a safe, loving, Christ-centered environment at our school. We foster all areas of the child’s development by providing a challenging yet nurturing curriculum. We consider development of the whole child, while recognizing that each child develops at a different pace in many different areas of growth.

Important Forms

Orientations will be held on August 13 and 14. You will receive an email stating the date and time of your child’s orientation. The first payment and snack/supply fee of $50 are due by August 1.
We look forward to a wonderful year!

What Parents are Saying

We love this preschool...

"We're wrapping up our 3rd year at EUMCP (with one more to go!), and my children love their preschool, and their excitement over going each day and learning something new speaks volumes! We can honestly say, this was one of the best decisions we made for our children. We love this preschool!"

We are so incredibly thankful...

"We are so incredibly thankful for Ebenezer UMC Preschool! It has been the most wonderful school for my daughter's first years and we are grateful to have found it. From her amazing teachers in the Fish class, to the lovely administration and support staff, everyone is so loving and caring. The drop off and pickup line runs very smoothly making it super easy for this mama of three young children to get our oldest to school. We will miss this preschool so much when we move and so wish that all of our children could go here!"

I cannot say enough good things...

"We are almost finished with our third year at EUMCP and I cannot say enough good things about the school. It is very apparent how much all of these ladies love their job and all of our children!"

All of our lead teachers have teaching degrees, and a wealth of experience working with children. The teachers have excellent ongoing training, and therefore are well prepared to create an environment that is stimulating and provides opportunity for active social and cognitive learning. All personnel are active members of their churches, have criminal record checks, and are certified annually by their physician to be free of any disability which would prevent them from caring for children.
