FUMPS is licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services. We are affiliated with the Southern California chapter of the Association for the Education of Young Children and with the Southern California Church Related Preschool Fellowship.
Recognizing the vital importance of early childhood in the basic character formation, First United Methodist Preschool was established in 1947. Its purpose was to provide the preschool child the opportunity for his own social, emotional, spiritual and developmental growth in a carefully planned program with a nurturing, Christian environment. It was and continues to be an integral part of the educational program of our church. In accordance with a tradition of providing a loving, supportive, stimulating, enriching and child-centered preschool program that FUMCOR continues to serve children and their families. It is the intention and purpose of the entire staff to foster and appreciate the individual child's natural curiosity, creativity and ability.
