Christ United Methodist Preschool is celebrating over 48 years of preschool education excellence in the NW Portland area!

CUMP has become a treasured tradition for families seeking early childhood education for their 3, 4 or 5 year old child with developmentally appropriate academics and creative, fun, active, hands-on centered curriculum and play.


“It’s like the little shop around the corner where attention to quality and years of experience have made all the difference!  It’s not like some of the bigger preschools where everything feels rushed and hectic.  It’s like a breath of fresh air for my family’s busy life!”  Gloria H.


The Preschool facility is spacious, clean and cheerful with engaging art, drama, writing, reading, phonics, math, block, nature, science and pet centers.  A large, fenced-in playground is located directly outside the rooms for safety and accessibility, as well as a covered play area with sand tables.

The teaching staff is college educated with many years of experience in early childhood development.
