Preschool

It’s Official!  We’ll be opening on Monday, October 5th!

Understandably, Covid-19 and our delayed opening have affected some some families ability to continue with our program, but we’ll contact everyone else who is still registered to make sure you still want your spot, most likely from Wednesday – Friday, 9/16-18.  From there, we’ll know if we can accommodate anyone on our waitlists or new inquiries.

 
  • We are working on putting safety and sanitation protocols in place in accordance with CDC guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.
  • Here are just some of the ways in which we are working toward our goals:
    • touchless thermometers
    • touchless sanitizing stations
    • touchless soap dispensers
    • touchless paper towel dispensers
    • Quat Santizer (EPA approved for use against SARS-CoV-2)
    • all classroom carpets have been commercially cleaned
    • classrooms and bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized prior to our first day
    • all toys and manipulatives will be cleaned and sanitized prior to our first day
    • the playground will be cleaned and sanitized prior to our first day

Please call the preschool office 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

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 2019 is linked below so you can learn more about our camps.  We had to cancel all three camps for Summer 2020 due to Covid, but hopefully we’ll be able resume next summer.
