Creative Curriculum

As a part of the "Creative Curriculum," we want your child to feel secure and independent to move from one activity to another as easily and confidently as possible.  We want to provide a variety of learning experiences for a well-rounded education.  Based on the theory that children learn through play, classroom routines encourage active involvement, meaning experimentation and reinforcement through repetition.  Schedules are designed to balance structure and free choice, as well as active and quiet times.

The mission of First Methodist Child Development Center is to provide a rich learning environment to stimulate and challenge each child's cognitive, social, emotional and physical development along with care that is supportive, loving and responsive to each child's individual needs.


Our Mother’s Morning Out program is from 18 months through 2 years old. Children can begin our Preschool program once they are 3 years old and fully potty-trained.

Mother’s Morning Out (18mo-3yrs) is from 8AM to 12PM Monday to Friday.

Our Preschool has two options:
Part time: 8AM to 12PM Monday to Friday
