MUMC Preschool

Medford Methodist Pre-Kindergarten School is a state-licensed school established in 1974 as part of the outreach of this church to the community. It is not the job of the preschool to instruct the children in any particular religious doctrine, but rather to live with them and their families in such a  way that they experience something of what it means to be a child of God. Medford Methodist Preschool admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.

As a state-licensed school, we follow all the outlined safety procedures of the state regulations. We have a strict release policy, as well as sign-in and sign-out procedures, and monthly fire drills. We are an allergy conscious school and work with parents to provide a safe environment for each child. Our spacious, enclosed play area is a favorite with the children.

Our dedicated staff is comprised of certified, experienced and caring teachers. We get to know each child and work to meet each child’s unique needs. Our small class sizes facilitate personalized attention.
