U Are U Preschool is a mission of the Manteno United Methodist Church since 1975.  

We provide a Christian based, literacy driven curriculum to children ages 3-5.  There are 4 classrooms at U are U Preschool, with a maximum class size of 10 students per class.  We have students from all surrounding areas including Manteno, Grant Park, Bradley, Bourbonnais, and Peotone.  

Our tuition for the 2021-2022 school year will be $1890, and can be broken down into 9 monthly payments of $210 from September-May.  U Are U Preschool is a Non-Profit organization, so tuition is based on our cost of operation.
