Waiting List Policy


First United Methodist Church Preschool will keep a waiting list when our rosters are full. We reserve the right to keep our classes smaller than the state mandated ratios. Enrollment from the waiting list will depend on a variety of factors including date the enrollment was requested, availability of age-appropriate classes, and enrollment of siblings.


We do not require a fee to be put on the waiting list.


When an opening becomes available, the family will be notified via email and/or telephone. If you do not respond within 3 business days, the next person on the list will be given the opening. Any time that an offer for enrollment is declined the child’s name will be taken off the list unless the parent provides a new date for seeking enrollment.


Once you have confirmed that you want to enroll, you have one week to pay the enrollment fee and fill out the admission papers.

Families on the waiting list may be contacted periodically via email or phone and asked if they want to stay on the list.


To place your child on our waiting list, you may call the preschool at 903-657-4881 or email preschool@fumchenderson.org. Information required: name and birthdate of child; parents name, phone number and email address; number of days and times you want your child to attend; and date of requested enrollment.
