for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

Registration and Tuition Payments


A non-refundable registration fee of $35 and your returned application packet holds your child’s spot for Fall 2022-23 at Merry Sunshine Pre-K.   Registration fee may be paid by check, money order, or cash.  Check or money order should be made out to: 

Christ United Methodist Church or CUMC


Before our August Open House, you will need to:


1.      Pay your child’s September tuition and submit your ACH paperwork to Ms. Sarah.  Automatic withdrawal will not begin until October therefore September tuition will need to be paid by check, money order, or cash.


2.       If you plan to pay tuition in full you will receive a 3% discount.  Let Ms. Sarah know before August Open House if you plan to pay in full.



Monthly tuition payments must be paid through Automated Clearing House (ACH),

where your monthly payment will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account either

on the 1st of the month or the 15th of the month.  We will provide an ACH form with your

July mailing information.

Merry Sunshine Preschool believes a child learns by doing, and focuses on helping

children grow through socialization and relationships with others.


The Illinois Early Learning & Development Standards are used as a guiding

force in lesson planning at Merry Sunshine.


Our curriculum helps the children develop independence and self confidence,

preparing them for kindergarten and beyond.


We are always interested in meeting or speaking with families interested in enrollment.

Merry Sunshine Pre-K is a loving and nurturing environment.
