Montgomery Street Preschool, an educational outreach ministry of the First United Methodist Church, exists to provide high quality early childhood education from a faith-based perspective to children of Knoxville and its surrounding area.



Your child is a unique child of God.  At Montgomery Street Preschool, children are encouraged to have a healthy self-image and appreciation of themselves and the community.  Through opportunities for individual affirmation and group sharing, the children learn positive feelings of self-worth, confidence and trust.

Your child learns by doing.  Children learn best when they have “hands-on” experiences. Through learning centers, children grow in basic skills needed for further growth in language arts, mathematical thinking, science, and creative arts.  Our learning environment provides activities which develop large and small motor skills, listening skills, and school readiness skills.



  • Spacious, bright, colorful rooms with a variety of equipment for developing large and small motor skills.

  • Fenced in outdoor play area with climbing structure.  Indoor climber for cold or rainy days.



  • Director and teachers are highly qualified through continuing education classes, training events, and teaching experiences.
