Welcome to UMC!
UMC is a parent-directed, cooperative nursery school that offers a unique program for children 18 months to five years of age.
Our school, which is non-profit and non-sectarian, is located in the United Methodist Church of Burlingame.
We provide a warm, supportive atmosphere in which children can develop positive feelings about their first school experience. We offer stimulating and varied activities designed to help each child grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially.
Parents play an active role in all aspects of school administration, maintenance, and growth. Parents serve as elected officers, comprising the Executive Board that governs the school.
UMC Cooperative Nursery School is a member of the San Mateo Council of Parent Participation Preschools. Learn more at www.sanmateopreschools.org.
