about Humc preschool

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.

Classes are held Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM. 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 NC Public School entry age statute.

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

Spaces are not reserved until we receive the completed application and registration fee. 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.
