There are FULL-TIME and PART-TIME options available for Summer Care. All Summer Care Sessions follow the same curriculum used in the regular school year programs. Our goal is to have students better prepared for their next academic year.
If your child is enrolled in our infant, Crawler, or Toddler programs, they must be enrolled year-round.

We cannot hold spots for the summer months since the program is popular and vacancies are limited. Tuition cannot be refunded for vacations. August will NOT be prorated.
Summer Fun spots are in high demand! We will ALWAYS offer our Summer spots to our families enrolled in the following school year first, then we will extend the offer to Alumni who GRADUATED from our PreK 4 program next and FUMCA alumni members. If space, then allows, we will take Alumni first come first served. New Preschool families enrolling for the school year, will be offered a Summer Fun spot option, to secure their enrollment in our Preschool Program.
SUMMER SWIM LESSONS
With an outdoor pool located on campus, Summer Fun at FUMP is proud to offer swim lessons to children ages 3yrs - 6yrs. With certified instructors, children will focus on becoming acclimated to the water and will learn basic water safety and skills. Parents are welcome to come and view their child during their designated lesson time from a private viewing room. Participants must be enrolled in FUMP's Summer Fun program.
Offered five days a week. At least three performances are given throughout the school year. Gross motor skills as well as team concepts are necessary in the execution of this activity.
First United Methodist incorporates a "whole-language" approach as our Spanish classes reflect what is currently being taught in our curriculum. Students are introduced to words and songs in Spanish in an effort to gain confidence and familiarity with a second language.
Occurs every Tuesday. All preschool classes meet in the sanctuary and listen to the First United Methodist Pastor speak about a Christian value that can assist in the character development of young children.
Taught every Wednesday to each class. Godly Play is a method for teaching children how Bible stories connect with your child's experiences and relationship with goodness. Godly Play respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of faith.
Our open-door policy extends beyond the walls of our building. FUMP is proud to be the only Central Louisiana Preschool and Childcare facility partnered with WatchMeGrow Video Streaming which allows parents and grandparents to stay connected to their children while they’re here, and to rest assured knowing that they’ve placed their children in the best care possible.
