At Central Union Preschool, children learn by doing and parents are encouraged to help kindle their child’s passion for learning. Founded 80 years ago as a pioneer in early education in Hawaii, this preschool, serving children ages 2 to 6 years old, ranks today as one of Hawaii’s leading early learning centers and one of the State’s largest church-related preschools.   

Sponsored by Central Union Church in Honolulu, the school’s Christian-based program recognizes the individual and cultural uniqueness of each child and the importance of engaging that whole child in learning experiences that are stimulating and fun.  The school’s highly qualified teachers, many with advanced degrees, involve youngsters with a variety of teaching strategies in classrooms and play areas designed to promote the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth of children.

Financial assistance is awarded on the basis of financial need through the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the Ruth McCraw/ Doris Rewick Scholarship Fund. Additional funds are available through the Central Union Church Preschool and Kindergarten endowment fund.
