Our mission is to provide an enriching and affordable developmentally preschool experience. Since 1958, UMPS has dedicated itself to promoting social, physical, emotional and intellectual growth of preschool children. We strive to provide a safe environment in which our children can develop at their own pace. Our educators are advocates of providing young minds with the essential tools and opportunities on a daily basis to explore and understand the world around them. We foster a nurturing environment in which children develop with a sense of responsibility, self- expression, confidence and an eagerness for curiosity.

Curriculum enhancements: seasonal field trips in the community alongside in-school enrichment programs; "Author of the Month" program highlighting beloved recognized authors; music, yoga, and Spanish
