Colonial Hills United Methodist School was founded in 1970 with a mission of providing quality early childhood education.  We provide a warm, secure and loving Christian environment for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners. 


At CHUMS we consciously and lovingly use the principles of Conscious Discipline to provide the very best throughout the many facets of your child's day.  Our entire staff works incredibly hard to ensure each child feels safe, loved and secure.  


Our goal is to foster your child's development through a developmentally appropriate curriculum emphasizing hands-on activities and discovery methods of learning. Our safe, loving environment nurtures and develops each child allowing them to grow socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and intellectually.

We invite you to join our family and discover the power of learning through play and the deep rich culture of our school. We are accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. ENROLL HERE
