PLAY, LEARN, AND GROW

Our Mission
Wesley Grove Pre-kindergarten is a ministry of Wesley Grove United Methodist Church. Our purpose is to provide a secure, loving Christian environment for ages 2 through pre-kindergarten.

Our curriculum helps develop important social and academic skills. Every school day includes both structured and unstructured time under the guidance of qualified teachers and aides.

Each Wesley Grove Pre-kindergarten classroom presents age-appropriate materials and activities to stimulate the natural curiosity in each child, encourage positive social interaction and develop a life-long love for learning.
