Weekday Preschool

Our Response to COVID-19

“Trust in God at all times. Pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.” -Psalm 62:8

In following Governor Kemp’s Executive Order that all schools in Georgia remain closed for the remainder of the school year, the Athens First UMC Weekday Preschool will be closed for the remainder of the Spring 2019-2020 school year. We look forward to our return to Weekday Preschool and will keep you updated. 

We are heartbroken to have to end the school year this way, but we are hopeful that we will be able to come together as a school family at some point in the near future. When we know how and when we can get together again, we will be in touch as soon as possible!
Also, we will unfortunately not be able to have our two preschool camps in May. We will refund all families as soon as we are able. We will also refund all previous Lunch Bunch payments as soon as we can.Please know that we will continue to pray for your families during this time. We love you and miss you all!
