Mt. Zion UMC

Our Ministries


The preschool was founded in 1977 by Mt. Zion United Methodist Church. The Mt. Zion United Methodist Co-op Preschool is a non-denominational preschool, where academics and social skills are taught in a loving, Christian environment where the teacher can pray with your child.


Enrollment dates for the 2020-2021 school session are:

February 10th – Current/previous and church members

March 2nd – Public

You must physically turn in the registration form and pay the registration fee to reserve your spot.  No information can be taken over the phone (except to be put on a waiting list).

When enrollment is full, parents go on a waiting list and are called as an opening is available and the registration fee and forms are turned in and paid to hold their spot.

Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 – Noon – 217-864-4813 (Closed Fridays June – August)


There is a Teacher and a Teacher’s Assistant.

Children need to be 3 or 4 (& potty trained) by September 1st.  Classes usually begin after Labor Day and go thru mid-May.

A smaller 3’s and 4’s class will be combined this year and will be in session on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Classes will begin this school year on September 14.

3’s are $80/month with a $50 non-refundable registration fee.
