MILFORD — It was just announced the Milford United Methodist Preschool, 208 W. Catherine St., will be closing in May after the graduation of its current preschool class.
According to Margaret Cousins, church board member, the preschool, which has been serving the community and teaching the local youth for the past 31 years, will be closing following the decision to retire from both of the preschool teachers. Maureen Haab and Delana Walker have decided to retire from their teaching jobs at the end of this year. The preschool currently only has one class this year.
Cousins is anxious and hopeful to see if another local church will pick it up because she believes it is important to have a religious preschool in Milford.
In early May, Cousins commented there will also be an open house at the preschool for the teachers to celebrate their retirement.
