Quality Care and Education in a Christian Environment

First Preschool has been providing a quality educational program in a Christian environment since 1992. During the school year preschool programming is offered to children ages 3 – 5 years old. All children enrolled in our day care attend morning preschool at no additional cost to parents.

In 2009 First Preschool added year round day care for children ages two to five years old, and summer program for children five to eleven years old.

Infant and toddler care is offered at The Baby Place, a licensed infant and toddler center located in the Ziemer building adjacent to First UMC. First Preschool & Day Care and The Baby Place are open from 6:30 AM until 5:30 PM, Monday – Friday.

The Baby Place

Our licensed infant and toddler daycare is located in the Ziemer building adjacent to First United Methodist Church. The Baby Place provides a warm, safe environment for children six weeks to two years of age. Our infant and toddler teachers provide simple, consistent routines for diapering, mealtimes, naps, outside time, and transitions. Teachers use this time to give one-on-one attention while they give personal care to each child. First consideration is given to First UMC church members and current families. $300 per week – full time care only.

First Preschool & Daycare and The Baby Place are staffed by licensed teachers who provide a warm, caring, Christian atmosphere in a child friendly environment. Church members and the community are welcome to check out our programs and facilities.
