West Lawn UMC Preschool

In September of 2021, West Lawn United Methodist Church opened a new preschool in its Reiner Education Building. This preschool is an intentional strategy by West Lawn UMC to embrace and nurture the community, and offer radical hospitality beyond Sunday morning worship services and discipleship.

Our preschool classes  offer free play and socialization, as well as fundamental educational teaching. The children use a variety of materials to exercise all their developmental skills: language, imaginative, cognitive, social-emotional and physical development (gross motor, fine motor), and spiritual. Sensory activities and hands-on learning are also part of their day at preschool.
