Our mission is to provide a safe, loving environment that nurtures and develops the whole child; socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually & intellectually.

Welcome to Our School Family

Colonial Hills United Methodist School was founded in 1970, and since then we have been providing the best private toddler, Pre-K, and Kindergarten programs in San Antonio. Our mission is to provide a safe, loving environment that nurtures the whole child.

The educational experience your child will receive at CHUMS goes beyond the classroom to provide them with the key social-emotional skills necessary for future academic success. Although many people think of school readiness as academic preparedness, we ask parents look differently at what it means to be ready. School readiness skills, directly associated with academic success, are often referred to as “social and emotional health” skills. Research shows high quality toddler, preschool and Kindergarten programs provide one the best opportunities to prepare your child for their academic career. Our  hands-on activities and discovery methods of learning, in conjunction with Conscious Discipline, provide the tools necessary to be not only successful in school, but also successful in life.

We invite you to join our family and discover the power of learning through play and the deep rich culture of our school. Enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year opens on January 29. Learn more about enrollment HERE.

"All three of our daughters have gone through this wonderful preschool! The kids get lots of time to be outside and 
play, and it has such a safe and welcoming family feel. Cannot recommend it enough."
"Wonderful preschool for kids. Staff is caring and professional. It's a small enough school so my son gets lots of personal attention and I feel he is safe there. I highly recommend it."
