Welcome to Bexley United Methodist Preschool!  Established in 1952, BUMP is a non-profit preschool open to potty-trained children ages 3-5 years old of all religious and ethnic backgrounds.  We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services (ODJFS).

We believe that each child is unique and learns best through play.  We use a project approach where children will have the opportunity to explore topics that are of interest and relevance to them in an interactive, hands-on way. Academics and kindergarten readiness skills will be integrated into their daily activities.  Our classrooms are designed so that children have the ability to make choices, develop strong social skills, and practice important self-help skills.  We use the Highscope curriculum which is aligned with the State of Ohio Early Learning and Development Standards.  We nourish and encourage each child’s natural curiosity!

We offer flexible scheduling where parents can choose the schedule that best fits their family’s needs.  We offer part day (9am-12:30pm) and full day (8am-5pm) classes where you can choose 2, 3, or 5 days.
