Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Mark 10:14

**Mission Statement**
"Jamestown Preschool is committed to providing an atmosphere of Christian love where a child can experience the joy of learning while building a positive self-image."

Updated for the 2022-2023 school year.

Our preschool has two age groups available. The groups are made up as follows:

  1. 2 day classes: For children that are already 3 year olds (by August 1st), and will be turning 4 during the school year.  Classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
    Sessions are from 8:45-11:15am. 
    The tuition is $100/month.

  2. 3 day morning classes: For Pre-kindergarten children. For older preschoolers who are at least 4 years old by August 1st.
    The class meets Mon/Wed/Fri.
    Sessions are from 8:45-11:15am
    Tuition is $115/month.

  3. 3 day afternoon classes: For Pre-Kindergarten children. For older preschoolers who are at least 4 years old by August 1st.
    The class meets Tues/Wed/Thurs.
    Sessions would be from 12:00 until 2:30pm.
    Tuition is $115/month.
    Class is available if there are enough children to sustain both a morning and an afternoon session.

  4. 4 session classes: For children at least 4 years old by August 1st desiring extra time at preschool.  (Offered if there is enough interest.)  The class would meet Monday afternoons in addition to one of the 3 day morning or afternoon prekindergarten sessions listed above (#2 or #3). Class time on Monday would be from 11:15 or noon until 2:30pm.
    Tuition is $145/month and includes all 4 sessions.

Tuition includes the cost of class field trips for the preschoolers.

Class sizes are limited, so registration needs to be completed as soon as possible.  The registration fee will be $35 through May 20th and will go up to $45 beginning May 21st.  Upon receipt of the non-refundable registration fee, the child's enrollment is secured for the school year, which runs September through May.

Jamestown Preschool is located at Jamestown United Methodist Church, 59218 CR 3 South, Elkhart, just south of Jimtown High School.

Families are welcome to set an appointment to visit and register.  We can provide a tour of the building, answer questions, show samples of children’s work, discuss curriculum, and enroll children when you make an appointment. The children may attend with their parents.  To receive more information, call Kathy at 574-679-4716 anytime or 574-389-1555 (only between September and May as our preschool office closes for the summer) or by email at
