"....the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith."  1 Timothy 1:5

Welcome to Carmel UMC Preschool!

       Carmel United Methodist Church Preschool just celebrated its 50th year in 2022! We love serving our great community as we learn, explore, and grow together in God's love. Our goal is to create and nurture a love for learning in a joyful, safe, Christ-centered environment.


      Our teachers and staff work in collaboration to create learning activities that are developmentally appropriate and play based according to the educational standards set by the Department of Education. Our students enjoy learning through inquiry based play, while interacting with their peers to create positive emotional and social learning experiences. 


     Please find tabs on this page with our class offerings, tuition fees, newsletter, and calendar. We ask that you please reach out to our director, Tiffany Lehman if you have any additional questions or would like to schedule a tour.  We have a GREAT preschool community and we would love to tell you more about us!
