Welcome to Community United Methodist Child Development Center (CUMCDC), a faith-based preschool and childcare center working to embrace the needs of the Crofton community. We are a long-term ministry of Community United Methodist Church, which provides children with a safe, nurturing and enriching Christian environment with a low student to teacher ratio.
Our preschool programs follow a full literacy, math, science and social studies curriculum which has been approved by the MD Department of Education. We also offer weekly chapel service to build an understanding of the love of Jesus Christ in their lives.
Our School-age Before & After Care program (K-5th grade) provides transportation to all four Crofton elementary schools. After school, we provide homework assistance, healthy snacks, enrichment activities, outside play, and chapel. The Child Development Center has been enriching children’s lives socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually in Crofton since 1980.
CUMCDC has been re-licensed and approved by the Maryland Department of Education and the Anne Arundel County Department of Health to operate under all new COVID-19 protocols. We take this pandemic very seriously and have initiated extensive and additional sanitation and safety protocols to protect our students and their families. Our teachers are vaccinated. Our Center is also prepared to accept full-time AACPS hybrid-learning students that will include safe transportation to and from their school on in-class learning days.
