Journey Preschool

Journey Preschool has been a ministry of the First United Methodist Church in Harlingen for over 30 years. As a preschool, we strive to maintain a child-centered program, in which children of all backgrounds may develop physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually, in a loving Christian atmosphere. 

We encourage learning through play while a child's feeling of self-worth and regard for others is placed above achievement. Classes are offered for children ages 18 months to 4 years of age. JPS prides itself on being able to provide small classroom sizes in a cozy and secure school setting. We would love to give you a tour and or answer any questions you have -- please contact us!
