Weekday Children's Ministries
The Weekday Children’s Ministries at First United Methodist Church provide a safe and loving Christian environment to meet the spiritual, educational, social and emotional needs of our children and their families.
Parents can choose from several different programs to meet their needs.
Childcare: A year-round program designed for children six weeks to five years of age who need full-time or part-time quality care in a cheerful, loving environment. The Fireflies curriculum is used to enhance daily activities. All children between the ages of 2 – 5 must be enrolled in the preschool program from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. Childcare hours are from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. five days a week.
Preschool: The preschool has long been a part of the children’s ministries at First United Methodist Church. Our two year old, three year old and pre-K programs are taught by teachers who are skilled in educating young children. They are taught by certified teachers when possible. Preschool hours are 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. five days a week. The preschool follows the school calendar. Early morning care and Stay & Play hours may be added for an additional fee.
Mother’s Day Out: Mother’s Day Out (MDO) is designed for children 12 – 24 months old who need play time with children their own age. Children must be 1 year of age by September 30 to attend this program. Quality care in a safe and happy environment is our main goal. The Itty-Bitty Bookworm curriculum is used to enhance daily activities. Children may attend for one, two, three, four or five days a week from 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. MDO follows the preschool calendar.
Stay & Play: Stay & Play is offered five days a week from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. for preschoolers. Children eat lunch, play outside and engage in enrichment activities led by the preschool teachers. A napping room is available.
Summer Fun: The Summer Fun program is designed to offer a preschool program during the months of June and July. It is offered two days a week from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. There are two four-week sessions of Summer Fun; students commit to an entire session.
