First United Methodist Cooperative Nursery (FUMCN) is a Reggio-inspired preschool that offers flexible scheduling for parents who want to be involved in their child’s education. We provide three strands of offerings: morning and afternoon programming for 3-5 year olds (Preschool), morning programming for 2 year olds (Twos), and a parent playgroup for children 18 months to 3 years (Parent Playgroup).  In addition, we offer Sibling Care, a discounted service for siblings of children in FUMCN class.  Each service is priced separately, but all are under the FUMCN umbrella.
