History
Wesley Freedom UM Church Early Years Learning Center was developed, and began operating in 1977 as an outreach of Wesley Freedom United Methodist Church. The Center ministers to the needs of young children in a Christian atmosphere which fosters physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth. The Center seeks to provide a stimulating environment in which each child is free to experience and grow.

Facilities and Staff
The classrooms are equipped in such a way as to invite the children to participate in a wide variety of activities. There is a block center, painting and art area, book center, small manipulatives shelf, dramatic play area, music center, science table, discussion center and facilities for washing and toileting off each classroom. An outdoor play area provides the children opportunities for climbing, digging, swinging, sliding and riding. The staff is qualified and trained in Early Childhood Education and is carefully selected. Staff that are First Aid trained and CPR Certified are always present.

Curriculum
The curriculum is planned to effectively meet the needs of all the children the Center serves. Opportunities will be given to foster each child’s development as a part of a group.
