Trust in The Lord

Bracken United Methodist Preschool (BUMP)


We are a licensed school offering high quality early education for children 
ages infant through Kindergarten.

Preschool Office Phone:  830-624-1429


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 and 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. 


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

Hours of Operation:
Monday through Friday
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. with extended care hours from 8:00 – 4:30 p.m. 
Drop in is available for enrolled families.
Program options:  Families may select 2 or 4 days.
​A 3 or 5 day option is available when Monday Kid’s Club is included.
