Jamestown United Methodist Preschool

Welcome to JUMP

Welcome to Jamestown United Methodist Preschool.  We’ve been a part of Jamestown United Methodist Church since 1958.  JUMP is a quality half-day preschool program with a dedicated and qualified staff who nurture children in a safe and loving Christian environment.  We strive to provide them with a multitude of learning experiences promoting their development at age-appropriate levels, helping them grow physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually.  We meet them where they are and strive to build from there.

About JUMP


JUMP was started in 1958 and serves as an outreach mission of Jamestown United Methodist Church.  We have created a program which honors and respects children as active learners & allows them to learn at developmentally appropriate levels. 

We apply recognized professional standards which support a quality preschool program.
