First School

The infant, toddler, and preschool programs at First United Methodist Church have been a weekday ministry of the church for over twenty years. Children enrolled in First School range in age from two months to K5. Applications for the 2020-2021 school year are now being accepted. The Parent Handbook, as well as younger and older registration forms, can be found below. Call now for a tour!

Dear Parents,

What an exciting time for First United Methodist Church and First School! We are beginning our Impact Campaign to update our Children’s Building during the 2020-2021 school year. Our gorgeous building is ninety years old and in need of some renovations. They will be addressing safety, technology, and modernization. In the meantime, we anticipate not being in our regular rooms for part of the school year. A church users group is already working to find the best possible temporary classrooms in Wesley Hall with as little disturbance as possible. All of the needs of the First School children will be taken into account. Thank you so much for all of your support and patience. Our new facilities will be well worth the wait! Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you!
