The PUMC Preschool, is a ministry of the Pittsboro United Methodist Church. Our Preschool was founded in 1979 with only 12 children enrolled and a dream to open our hearts and our doors to the local community, no matter what a family’s religious background may be.

Tuition is due on the first class session of each month. If tuition has not been received by the 2nd class session of the month, you will receive a reminder notification. A late fee of $25 will be assessed if tuition is not received by the 3rd class session of the month after notice is given. After 14 days of non-payment, preschool services will be suspended until fees have been paid. During the non-payment suspension, your child’s spot is not guaranteed as the preschool’s wait list will be utilized.
Checks returned due to non-sufficient funds will be charged a $25 fee.
Timely pick-ups are expected at the end of the preschool day. The first late pickup will result in a warning. Any following late pickups will result in a fee of $1/minute for every minute late. We appreciate your cooperation as our teachers use after class time to clean up from the day and prepare for the next day’s activities.
Monthly newsletters are mailed from the Director. These newsletters will have important information like important reminders, special events, and upcoming days off school. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Classroom teachers will also communicate important classroom information using a classroom app, GroupMe. It is very important that you download the app to stay up to date on all classroom activities.
