“Central Union Preschool provided a wonderful experience for our children’s start of their school journey. CUPS gave them a love for learning, a spiritual foundation and magical memories to last a lifetime. The teachers are so nurturing and patient!  We never had a worry knowing our children were in the best care!  We are eternally grateful to CUPS!”

“Kindergarten here I come!  Words cannot express the gratitude my family has for all the faculty, staff, teachers, friends and parents at Central Union Church Preschool & Kindergarten!!  We had such an amazing experience in a nurturing, Christian and academically rich environment!  Noah started CUPS when he was 2.5 years old up until now 5.5 years old!  The memories, friendships and learnings that was created at CUPS will forever impact his life in many ways.  Many mahalos to Marie Nani Hook for being CUPS fearless leader who loves and believes in our children!  This is not a goodbye, we will see you again!”

“Our three girls spent 4 wonderful years at Central Union Preschool. The staff and teachers are the best I’ve seen. They are kind, nurturing, and care for the kids like they would their own. Central Union Preschool is a true community – everyone know’s your child’s name, parents are actively involved, and there are so many amazing learning experiences for the children. Our girls left Central Union Preschool full prepared for their next journey, and we are so thankful for our experience there.”

“We were extremely blessed that each of our three children had their first educational experience at Central Union Church Preschool and Kindergarten, and are grateful for the foundation and opportunities it provided for our whole family.  From our first day 8 years ago to current, Mrs. Hook and the entire staff at the preschool has welcomed our family into the CUPS ‘ohana with open arms.  They are all well experienced, easy to talk to, and are always there to answer any question I have, provide guidance, advice, and reassurance to the children and the parents, at just the right time…

This is a wonderful, loving, trusting, and organized early education program where our family and, most importantly, our children, developed a strong foundation for their love of learning, love of play, and formed lifelong friendships.  Each of my children were excited to go to school everyday, did not want to leave when I picked them up, and had MANY things to share about their day when they came home.

Mrs. Hook has guided her teaching staff to develop a well-balanced program of structure and play which has allowed my three-year old to write her name, give a presentation on her favorite ocean animal, and yet be a princess or chef all in the course of a day.

Our family loves Central Union Preschool as we have so many fond memories for each of our three children, and this school will always have a special place in our heart!”
