Gainesville First United Methodist Church Preschool opened its doors in the fall of 1980 with high hopes of loving, teaching and sharing the word of God to all the little ones who entered. We have been doing this for 30-plus years now and are still just as excited today as we were back then. From infants through Pre-K, we offer classes that teach young children and we have fun with them! Thanks to an engaging staff, wonderful pastoral assistance and terrific volunteers, the GFUMC Preschool is a warm and inviting environment for your child to thrive in. We welcome you to come check us out and join the thousands of students who have traveled through our program.

What is the Spring Showcase?

This annual fundraiser allows the parents to raise money for the preschool in a fun way. This is the largest fundraiser at GFUMC Preschool, and the funds allow the school to grow and be successful in the loving care they provide for the students of the school. Educational materials, books, curriculum, and so much more is provided directly to the students. The Spring Showcase includes a silent auction that includes donations from Disney, Zoo Atlanta, Little Ladybug, and many more. There will be musical performances from our 2s, 3s, and Pre-K classes, and their artwork and photographs will be on display. Jen Dean captures the picture of the students while learning and at play, you won’t want to miss these amazing images, consider a $15 suggested donation for the pictures. Lunch will be served by reservation only. For reservations email
