First United Methodist Cooperative Nursery Preschool

FUMCN cooperative preschool is a caring, stimulating, and secure place for children to learn and grow. We are located in downtown Ann Arbor. We encourage creative thinking and provide opportunities for problem solving to help expand your child’s mind through Reggio-inspired learning concepts. At FUMCN cooperative preschool, children learn by doing. Using a wide variety of materials, they touch, taste, smell, look, and listen. Our emphasis is on learning through play and social interaction.

FUMCN offers classes for 3, 4, and 5 year olds, with an experienced lead teacher AND assistant teacher in each classroom.

Please join us for our Spring Open House on Monday, April 8th, from 4:30pm-6:30pm! Get out from under the snow and come see what FUMCN is all about! Teachers and current parents will be available to answer your questions. Bring your kids, so they can explore our classrooms!
