Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

The Jarvis Preschool Program is a half-day program celebrating over 52 years as part of the Jarvis Memorial United Methodist Church’s education program.  The school seeks to develop and promote Christian attitudes and character in the children enrolled in the program through a caring and positive environment.  Children ages 6 weeks through Pre-K have opportunities to learn through their experiences as they share, take turns, and play together.  Christian emphasis permeates the entire program through Chapel, Bible Stories, songs, and other activities.
The school is staffed by professional teachers and assistant teachers.  The teacher-child ratio is kept low so that each child will have close personal guidance.
“Our mission is to partner with families to build a strong spiritual foundation in the lives of preschoolers. At Jarvis Preschool, we recognize that each child is a special and unique gift from God. Our teachers and leaders build foundations for spiritual growth by meeting children’s physical and emotional needs. Our goal is to lead children in Bible-learning experiences that are active, involving, and age-appropriate.  We bridge the gap between home and school providing a warm, loving environment in which social-emotional, physical and intellectual growth are enhanced.”

2022-2023 school year

Registration for currently enrolled families will be conducted through the end of February.  
General public registration will open Tuesday, March 1st at 9 am at the Jarvis Preschool Office.  Eligibility for classes is determined by the NC Public Schools cutoff date, Aug 31.
To enroll, print out and complete the registration form. Completed forms can be returned to the preschool office between 9 and 1 Monday through Friday.
Spaces are limited, please call the preschool office with any questions, 252-752-3101 ext. 302

Every effort is made to be fair and consistent in the process of enrollment at Jarvis Preschool. You may read the enrollment priority system in the handbook on page 2. Currently enrolled students who register during the open registration period are guaranteed enrollment in our school, but availability for a specific class is not guaranteed. We will put children in their first choice class to the best of our ability, but if the class is full we will move to second or third choice. Children will be placed on the waiting list for their first choice class.
