About Us


Seminole Heights United Methodist Preschool (SHUMPS) is a ministry of Seminole Heights United Methodist Church and was established in 1972 to provide Christian childcare and education to our surrounding community.

Our Mission

Seminole Heights United Methodist Preschool (SHUMPS) offers a Christian environment of quality and openness to diversity where each child is honored as a child of God and encouraged to develop his/her full potential.

The mission of SHUMPS is to offer quality infant and childcare and education in a loving and safe environment, which fosters physical, intellectual, behavioral and spiritual growth.

A foundation built on the Christian faith and promotion of Christian values is intrinsic to all aspects of the SHUMPS philosophy.


Childhood is precious. In a world where children are often forced to grow up too soon, we offer a community of gentleness and safety where the values of kindness, honesty, and respect are taught with loving care.

We believe that children and their families benefit from a high quality experience in the children’s early years and that there is a critical link between their childhood experiences and later successes in life.

Non-discrimination/Diversity Policy

Seminole Heights United Methodist Preschool (SHUMPS) is an equal opportunity service provider and grants enrollment without regard to a child’s race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender or disability to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
