Welcome to Kailua Methodist Preschool!

...where children are taught to understand their world and encouraged to explore the bigger world around them...


At KMP, our students are challenged through hands-on activities and life application skills. Our staff consists of fun, creative teachers that are dedicated, focused and passionate about teaching. We strive to develop self-confidence in our students; we encourage our children to learn how to "do it themselves"; and we help them begin to develop compassion, kindness, integrity, and accountability.


We also provide our students unique opportunities to help them learn about the world around them as well as to help identify their interests and talents. In addition to age-appropriate academics, we also incorporate into our day:

  • Field trips
  • Hands-on gardening
  • Music and dance
  • Hawaiian language and culture
  • Multi-media art
  • Lessons from our pastor
  • Extra-curricular opportunities (Soccer Shots, Prime Time Kids, Clay Time, etc.)
  • ... and lots of play!  

We believe social and behavioral skills are just as essential, if not more so, than academics. At KMP, we assert that it is important for children to have the proper skills to interact with their peers, older children, and even adults.


Please stop by our office to pick up an application and/or call to schedule a tour.  Tours are conducted by appointment, Monday through Friday, from 9am-3pm.
