It is the philosophy of Asbury Kindergarten and Preschool that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration, and discovery. 

Preschool children are creative and receptive.
Our teachers strive to nurture and encourage these qualities in the children who are part of this program.

Through play, song, movement, art, discovery, and observation, every child receives a personalized educational experience that meets his/her needs.

Planned within the framework of Christian philosophy, the school’s mission is to provide an atmosphere that encourages social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth and development of the child.

Children are admitted regardless of race, creed, color, sex, nationality, or religion. Asbury Kindergarten and Preschool, established in 1962, complies with all standards put forth by the South Carolina Department of Social Services.       

Daily operation is monitored by the Preschool and Kindergarten Advisory Committee. The KPAC is comprised of the School Director and Associate Director, two members of the staff and several parents-all selected by the Kindergarten Staff.

The Asbury Memorial UMC Kindergarten Board oversees the larger function of the Kindergarten as a ministry and intervenes in financial, legal, and facility management issues.
