All four of my children attended FUMC from 2007 - 2014. We had a wonderful experience. The teachers are like family - they have been there for years and they really knew our kids well. They have a curriculum and kids leave their four-year-old year prepared for kindergarten. We have attended three other preschools in the area and while they were ok, none of them had the warm fuzzy feeling of FUMC. One of my favorite aspects of FUMC is the Halloween parade through Columbia's downtown. It is always such a fun family event. I also love that they collect your child in car rider line, since I always had a sleeping baby along for the ride and that way I didn't have to get the baby out of the car. Don't let the aging facilities fool you - FUMC is certainly the best academic preschool in the area. We love it!
WDS is a wonderful start for the little ones. My grandson learned so much and is completely ready for kindergarden. The most fantastic, sweet, knowledgeable and patient women who work there, treat the kids as if they're their own. They're a great group and my daughter and I are very grateful to them for teaching our little man so much and taking such good care of him. They're a class act and we thank you ladies for everything.
