Our preschool is open to all families regardless of race, culture, color, national origin, physical or mental ability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or economic or educational differences who may benefit from our type of program. Enrollment priority is given to children of First United Methodist Church members and FUMC Co-op Preschool Alumni. Children with special needs will be assessed on an individual basis to determine their needs and make certain their needs can be met by our program.
The preschool will enroll children for the program based on age level and the choice of class days during the week. Classroom enrollment is limited by group size and ages of children. Our maximum class size is 18 for the Pre-Kindergarten classrooms and 16 for the Primary classrooms. We have a teacher and parent helpers in each class every day to maintain our adult-to- child ratio of 1:6. Children must be three years old by September 15 (Poudre R-1 cutoff date) to enter the Primary program and four years old by September 15 to enter the Pre-Kindergarten program.
Each February we begin the registration process for the upcoming school year. Registration involves filing out a registration form and paying the $50 non-refundable registration fee. This registration fee secures your child’s enrollment in the preschool is payable each year per child and does not apply to tuition. Registration begins in three phases. Phase 1 Current FUMC Co-op Families and FUMC Church Members, Phase 2 FUMC Co-op Preschool Alumni, Phase 3 Open Registration to New Families.
