First United Methodist Cooperative Nursery

Preschool & Young Fives Program

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 3’s and 4’s classes, as well as a half-day Young Fives program, with an experienced lead teacher AND assistant teacher in each classroom.

Classes for the 2017-2018 school year are full but we are accepting applications for our waitlist. To inquire about our waitlist please email

New for 2017-2018: 

  • Extended Day options for 3’s and 4’s
  • Reduced Assist Option for limited in-classroom responsibilities

Membership in the FUMCN cooperative preschool is open to everyone, regardless of race, creed, sex, family composition, or nationality and ethnic origin.
