Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Larchmont United Methodist Preschool is the longest operating Christian preschool in the Norfolk area.  An outreach ministry of Larchmont United Methodist Church, the preschool offers programming consistent with the best principles and purposes of early childhood education, combined with the objectives of a Christian education.  Founded in 1941 by the pastor's wife and the church administrative council, we focus on the development of the whole child, reaching all of the developmental domains: social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual. Our daily activities include arts and crafts, music, games, story time, fine and gross motor skill development, and chapel. Larchmont UMC Preschool operates September through mid June, closely paralleling the Norfolk Public Schools calendar.  We offer programs for children ages 2-1/2  through kindergarten.  

Larchmont UM Preschool operates under a Religious Exemption as obtained through the Virginia Department of Social Services.  We are required to maintain staff ratios, current first aid and CPR certifications, conduct staff trainings and maintain health and safety regulations.

The preschool is located within Larchmont United Methodist Church's education wing in the Larchmont neighborhood of Norfolk, Virginia.   Contact us at:  (757) 489-7823  or
