“Bracken UMC Preschool is a place where children always feel loved–and learn to love school!”- Parent, Nicole
“BUMP’s teachers are out of this world!  My child loves his teachers.” – Parent, Jessica
Purpose: To provide a safe and nurturing educational experience in a Christian environment.

Mission Statement: To be a place where children and families feel welcome; where children grow spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually; where God’s presence can be felt.

Our Program: We believe children learn best by doing. Developmentally appropriate active learning is researched based and supported by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. A child’s classroom is their textbook so we ensure our classrooms are filled with high quality materials and experiences. These intentional practices provide the foundation for children to develop academic readiness.

Curriculum: Bracken Preschool uses the Creative Curriculum which includes all developmental domains, and is based upon the guidance of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills), and the developmental expectations outlined in The American Academy of Pediatrics Developmental Checklist, Birth to Five. 

We offer:  MDO (Mother’s Day Out), PK3, PK4, and Kindergarten.

Enhancement: Fun Day Monday, Weekly Chapel, Stomp and Play, In-House Visitors, and Special Events.
