The Mission of First Congregational United Church of Christ is to WORSHIP God, WELCOME all who seek God, and EXPRESS our faith in actions.
First Congregational UCC Preschool
Enrolling NOW for January, 2022.
Our Preschool has been serving the Decatur area for over 45 years. Our motto, “where love and learning take flight…” incorporates the goals of our program to foster academic, emotional, and spiritual growth in children. Our desire is for each child to leave our program not only with the necessary academic skills to be successful in Kindergarten, but to also have a love for themselves, others, and God.
We are enrolling now for January and the registration fee has been lowered to $25. For this year the cutoff date is January 1. If your child is 3 or 4 by that date, you may enroll them in our classes.
Both our Three and Four year olds attend Monday-Thursday from 9:00-11:30 a.m.
Please call the church office (217)877-2216 to leave a message for the director if you are interested in registering your child.
Traditionally, our school year runs from September through May and we have used September 1 as our cutoff for birthdays. Your child must be either 3 or 4 by that date for enrollment in fall classes. Children who turn three after September 1, but before December 31 may be enrolled in January, if there are any remaining openings.
We begin registration for the following year in March. There is normally a $50 non-refundable registration fee. First Church members have pre-enrollment priority until Feb. 28 of each year. Registration during the year occurs as openings become available.
