Preschool

Summer 2020 – UPDATE
We are planning to reopen for the 2020-21 school year; however, we will be implementing additional safety and sanitation protocols in order to keep our preschoolers, their families, and our staff as safe as possible.  We will provide each family with these protocols before school begins.  **Preschool is unique in that it promotes socialization, sharing, cooperation, exploring, playing in centers, etc.  Social distancing is not on the list of what parents have come to love about preschool, so while we’ll be implementing additional opportunities for children to wash their hands, increased sanitation during the preschool morning and after dismissal, taking temperatures, etc., daily, we simply won’t be able to social distance preschoolers within a specific classroom.  We will do our very best to avoid multiple classrooms from interacting – one class at a time on the playground, etc.   

On 7/14, Governor Cooper extended Phase Two through Friday, August 7th, so our third week of summer camp is cancelled.  

The preschool office is open over the summer, so please call if you have any questions:  (336) 764-8645.  I will continue to register students for the upcoming preschool year, so please call the office or email me:  midwaypreschool@yahoo.com

* Preschool Registration:  Registration is now open to the public for fall 2020.  
We are currently enrolling students for 2’s, 3’s, 4’s and 5’s who are not yet enrolled in Kindergarten.  Some of our classes are full but we do have some openings; 3’s are the most limited.  Please see registration information below ↓.

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 2020-21 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 CampEach 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 as soon as they are available.  The school closure has caused a delay in these decisions.

                            REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR FALL 2020: Preschool Registration for the 2020-21                                 school year  is now ‘Open to the Public’.  A frequent q uestion, “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 late August, we’re usually on                                  waitlist for most classes.
