Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Asbury Community Christian Preschool and Clubhouse. Our Preschool and Clubhouse are missions of Asbury United Methodist Church. We have been partnering with families in Arnold and the surrounding area for over 35 years, offering quality preschool and childcare programs. Asbury is accredited by Maryland State Department of Education and has a “Level 5” rating from Maryland Excels.

We believe that children learn best through hands-on exploration and play. Our preschool program provides opportunities for children to discover the world around them. Our goal for the preschool program is to provide children with scaffold kindergarten readiness skills, both academic and social, in a loving Christian environment. We offer preschool class times, as well as before- and after-care for the preschool age child.

The school age program at Asbury, known as Clubhouse, is a warm and friendly environment. The after-school program offers students healthy body activities, social time, homework time and exploration through our daily STEM activities.

I would be happy to talk with you and give you a tour through our facility. Please call or email me to schedule a visiting time.

We look forward to having you and your child join our “Asbury Family.”

Preschool & Clubhouse Director


I am honored to serve as the Director for Asbury Christian Preschool and Clubhouse. I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful program and look forward to meeting and making connections with all of our families and children.

I have worked in the Early Childhood Education field for over 25 years. I completed my initial certificate in Early Childhood Education in the United Kingdom. I moved to the U.S. in 1993 and have obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a certificate in Director-Administration. It is my personal philosophy of meeting each child’s personal developmental needs, while providing a secure, nurturing, safe and academic environment following Early Childhood best practices.

I look forward to meeting with you and getting to know each individual family. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
