Little Methodist Preschool has been serving the Lodi community for 51 years. We are a not-for-profit school providing classes for two, three and four year olds. We are able to offer a low teacher-child ratio (1 – 5) as well as smaller class sizes, with our largest class having only 15 children.

Our schedule is based on a school year that runs from August through May, corresponding to the LUSD schedule. Registration takes place in February, but parents may call the school at any time to see if there are class openings available.

The school is not restrictive as to racial, national or religious origin. A preschool Parent Board composed of parents and the Director governs the Preschool in accordance with applicable laws and regulations under the auspices of the First United Methodist Church, Lodi.

We invite you to explore the opportunities for your child at Little Methodist Preschool at 200 West Oak Street in Lodi.


Within a loving environment we seek to provide:

A curriculum that respects how a young child learns, and will provide activities that are age appropriate for preschoolers.

Activities that encourage direct experience and discovery.

Developing social skills through supervised play with other children of the same age.

Language development through stories, song and conversation.

A growing sense of interest and wonder toward science and the natural world.

Visits to places or to people of interest in our community.

Wholesome physical activity.

Opportunities to develop independence and a self worth.

Activities that encourage spiritual growth and awareness that each child is special in the eyes of God.
