About Midway UMC Preschool
We offer one-half day preschool (8:30 am – Noon) for ages 2 – 5. Each student must be the age of his/her class by August 31. We follow the Davidson County School calendar for vacations and days off. See the attached Preschool Brochure for more information about our program, tuition, and days/classes offered. A Registration Form for 2019-20 is attached; however, please call for availability. We’re happy to enroll a child anytime during the preschool year if we have an opening.
Our program started as a two-day Play School in the 1960’s and has evolved into a five-day Preschool, where our goal is to help prepare children not only for kindergarten but a lifetime of learning, through a variety of age appropriate activities that are fun, exploratory, academic, physical, and sometimes messy! We provide a loving, Christian environment where we are able to share the good news of Jesus!
We have been serving both Davidson and Forsyth Counties for over 50 years! Even though we are located in Midway, our 2019 preschool graduates are currently enrolled in 11 different elementary/private schools in both counties. We are so thankful to all of our preschool families who recommend our program to their family, friends, and neighbors.
Summer Camp: Each summer we offer three weeks of summer camp: one week in June, one week in July and one week in August. Camp is open to potty-trained 3’s through rising 5th graders. Each week has a unique theme, and the final Friday in August is our outside water fun day. We rent a water slide and have other outdoor activities. Our brochure from last summer is linked below so you can learn more about our camps. We’ll publish dates and themes in February or March.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR FALL 2020: Preschool Registration for the 2020-21 school year will be open to the public on Monday, March 2, 2020. A frequent question, “When is the deadline to enroll?” There is no deadline to enroll per se, but we do recommend registering early because classes fill up fast and by the time school begins in September, we’re usually on waitlist for most classes.
We’re currently working on planning Summer Camp 2020 and will post an updated brochure soon. Here are our 2020 camp dates:
June: 15 – 19
July: 13 – 17
August: 3 – 7
**Preschool Openings: We have several openings in the 2’s, 3’s & 4’s for the balance of the year from now – May. Call the Preschool Office @ (336) 764-8645 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to see what’s available.
Reminder: Cold and Flu season is upon us, unfortunately. Please be reminded that any child who presents with a fever of 100° or higher at preschool, will be sent home and cannot return until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication (Advil or Tylenol). If your child runs a fever at home, please use this guideline as well.
