Preschool and Kindergarten
and socialization in a loving, Christian environment for children"
The Hollywood United Methodist Preschool, an outreach ministry of the
Hollywood United Methodist Church, was established in September 1975.
The preschool program is designed to help the individual child develop
socially, physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. Each
child is encouraged to develop at his or her own pace through individual
and group instruction.
Classes and Staff
We offer a part-time preschool program for children ages 2 years through
4-and-a-half-years old. We have a stimulating and well-educated staff
ready to encourage and guide your child. Our center's adult-to-child ratio
is less than recommended by the State of Maryland. We are licensed by
the Maryland State Department of Human Resources, and regulated by the
Office of Childcare. We are also recognized as a 1/2 day MSDE Kindergarten.

This half-day program is designed to meet and exceed the expectations
of a typical kindergarten program. The small class size allows more one-on-one
interaction between the student and the teachers. Learning to function
in a group, yet maintaining their individuality is our goal. Each child
will be encouraged to advance at his/her own pace. This program is recognized
by the MSDE.
* Note: Children wishing
to gain early admittance must pass a kindergarten readiness test administered
by this school.
Hollywood United Methodist Preschool and Kindergarten prides itself
with many "hands-on" activities, opportunities for social interaction,
and our low teacher to child ratio.
United Methodist Preschool and Kindergarten does not discriminate on the
basis of race, color or religion.
