Shoregate United Methodist Preschool has been providing a quality preschool program for 3, 4  and 5 year old children for the last 58 years.  Located in Shoregate Methodist Church at 30500 Bayridge Boulevard, we offer 2 1/2 or 3 hour classes designed to meet the academic and social needs of your preschooler.

Our unit-based curriculum featuring topics such as dinosaurs, careers, safety, insects, and nutrition provides crafts and readiness activities designed to promote skills needed for kindergarten.  We provide lots of opportunity for both large and small muscle activities in our indoor playroom and our enclosed outside play area.  Special events include circus days, holiday parties, Christmas program and promotion ceremony.  Also our 4yr. olds and Pre-K classes walk to the library and fire station.  A spring picnic in Lake Metroparks is a family affair for all students with a visit from Outback Ray. 


Many of you are ready to register for preschool and we are anxious to begin the process. At the preschool, we have been busy firming up plans for the 2021-2022 school year. Our intent is still to begin the school year in Shoregate United Methodist Church and if and when the building sells, have a nearby location that we can move into. At this time there are still some details that need to be considered and finalized. We are going to set a tentative date of Monday, April 26 to begin registration. Registration will be on-line on the REGISTRATION TAB. Put the date on your calendar and check the website for updates. Please let your friends know that Shoregate United Methodist Preschool will be open this fall!

We are available to give tours Tuesday and Friday morning.  If you would like to schedule a tour please call the preschool office at 440-944-5422 and leave a message.

Thank-you for your patience. We are working hard to maintain the quality early childhood education the Willowick and surrounding communities have known Shoregate United Methodist Preschool to provide.
