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 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.


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 Hawaiian language and culture, hands-on gardening, multi-media art, field trips, music and dance, lessons from our pastor, and lots of play!  


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.


Note: we are currently full for the school year 2018-2019.  There may be a slot available here and there; you can call us and we will let you know.  If your child is 2 years old, we are full and have a waitlist of over 20 students, so unfortunately, we are not taking any more names at this time.  Open enrollment is always on March 1 for the next school year, and is first come, first served.  We usually fill up on that date.
