Walnut United Methodist Preschool and Kindergarten is a ministry of Walnut United Methodist Church. We are a non-profit organization and are licensed by the State Of California Department Of Social Services, facility #198006178.

The school was first opened in Rowland Heights in 1971 as Bell Memorial United Methodist Preschool. The Lord opened a door for us to relocate the school to the city of Walnut, on September 1, 2000, where we proudly took on our new name and continue to serve God through the care and teaching of the children in this community.

The preschool will be in session Monday through Friday on a year-round basis, except on specified holidays shown on the annual calendar. Children may attend either two-day, three-day, or five-day in the morning enrichment, half-day, or full-day programs.

The director and teachers are thoroughly trained in Early Childhood Education. They are also certified in CPR/First Aid. Each teacher is allowed the opportunity to create a unique and well balanced program within a warm and loving environment. The staff benefits from the school’s membership in the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Church Related Nursery School Fellowship of Southern California.
