Preschool

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.”

2023-2024 Preschool Enrollment
We are excited to begin our 54th school year!  Current students and siblings as well as Jarvis Church members may begin enrollment for the upcoming school year with enrollment forms being submitted no later than February 22th.  We will open enrollment to the public February 27th at 9 am.  Completed enrollment forms must be turned into the Jarvis Preschool Office between the hours 9 and 1 Monday through Friday.  Forms may be turned into the church office between 1 and 5 Monday through Thursday.    
We recently began utilizing the Brightwheel app in our preschool.  This app allows easy communication between staff and families as well as giving families the option to make payments using the app.  
The enrollment fee (nonrefundable) is paid separately once classroom assignments have been given to families and is not part of the nine month tuition schedule.
Tuition is paid from September (payment #1) through May (payment #9).
A one time supply fee of $85 or $105, depending on number of days attending, is due with tuition in September. 
Please call the preschool office with any questions, 252-752-3101 ext. 302 or email Christie at jarvisumcpreschool@gmail.com.
