CHRISTIAN BEGINNINGS PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN

It is the purpose of the Duluth First United Methodist Church to minister to our congregation and our community by providing an early learning program for children ages 1 through 5 years and their parents. We strive to support the development of sound basic social and spiritual skills; a love of learning; and an appreciation of self, others, and God's world in a loving, Christian environment.

Where will your Preschool or Kindergarten age child spend their days during the 2018-2019 school year? Our registration for the Christian Beginnings Preschool and Kindergarten 2018-2019 school year will begin on Tuesday, January 16th. What better way for your child, or a friend’s child, to learn their ABC’S, numbers, shapes, God’s love for us and so much more, than in a caring, loving, Christian environment.

They will have fun and make friends while attending our accredited, award winning school. We hope you will come join us! If you know of anyone looking for a wonderful preschool, please send him or her our way.

Our preschool and kindergarten program is for children ages 6 weeks (by September 1st, 2018) through kindergarten. Registration is underway and we are running an early registration special through Friday, February 16th, 2018. We are offering a registration discount of $145.00 for the first child and $125.00 for each additional sibling. Beginning on Monday, February 19th, the registration fee will be $170.00 for everyone.
