Welcome to Bexley United Methodist Preschool where we believe that each child is unique and learns best at their own pace, through play and hands on activities. Curiosity and creativity are our best teachers!  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 use a project approach where children will have the opportunity to explore topics that are of interest and relevance to them in an interactive way. Academics and school readiness skills will be integrated into their daily activities with a focus on social emotional awareness and learning.  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 are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services (ODJFS).

We offer flexible scheduling where parents can choose the schedule that best fits their family’s needs. Our primary focus is offering a quality early childhood education. We offer part day (9am-12:30pm), full day (8am-2:30pm), &  extended care (2:30pm – 5 pm) classes. While we do offer the extended hours to assist with your childcare needs, we strongly recommend a back up child care plan as we are not a daycare. Check out our programs page for more details!.
