Welcome to HUMC Preschool!

"See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God."

1 John 3:1




At Hampstead United Methodist Church (HUMC) Preschool, we provide a loving, nurturing environment for young children and an enticing place for creative learning experiences through play, music, stories, and art in a Christian surrounding.

We are a morning program that meets Mondays through Thursdays. The school year begins the first Wednesday after Labor Day in September and continues through the Thursday before Memorial Day in May. Holidays and other days off closely follow the Pender county school calendar.


All children must be current on immunizations. A medical form completed by a physician is required annually. 

All children entering the Three Year and Pre-K classes must be potty trained.


Children are placed in classes based on their age on August 31st of the current school year. This is consistent with the public school placement law.


All classes meet four mornings per week, Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00am until noon.

Classes offered include:

        One Year Class

        Two Year Class

        Three Year Class

        Pre-K Class (ages 4 & 5)


Annual non-refundable registration fee: $150.00

Monthly tuition: $240.00

Family Discount: $15.00 monthly discount for each additional child per family enrolled.


To register your child, complete an application, and return it with the registration fee and a current copy of the child's immunization record. A medical form must be received annually before the child may attend.

Spaces are limited and are offered on a first come first served basis. Once a class becomes full, a waiting list is created.

We reserve the right to change or cancel class offerings if there are not enough children to fill the class. If a class is cancelled, the registration fee will be refunded.
