We are a non-profit, self-supportive program established in 1967 operating under the auspices of the Chevy Chase United Methodist Church. The school provides a morning preschool program for children ages two through five years. Early morning and afternoon enrichment programs are also available.

Mission Statement

As a school community within a Christian community, we are committed to nurturing children to develop into the fullness of their potential and to increasing their awareness of and compassion for the world around them.

We affirm a child’s spirituality and believe children should be aware of God’s presence in our lives. Therefore Christian philosophy, learning that God has created us, loves us and cares for us, is fundamental to our program.

The program seeks to expose children to community life through field trips, community service, and classroom units so that they are able to see themselves in relation to families, communities and all of God’s world.

The children say a blessing together each day before snack, and participate in three brief non-denominational services in the Sanctuary at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
