FUMC Weekday Child Development Ministry is Now Enrolling for the 2019-20 School Year!
For over 60 years, The Weekday School of First United Methodist Church in Hendersonville has been touching the lives of children in Henderson County. Our church believes that each child is a child of God and should have every opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically to the fullest potential. It is our purpose to provide that opportunity for development through safe, nurturing care for the children and families of The Weekday School.
In 2014, we earned a North Carolina license as a religious sponsored childcare provider. This license allows to better serve the families in our care by offering extending hours beyond our morning schedule.
In order to meet the growing needs of our Weekday School families for a flexible and extended schedule, we offer two unique programs five days a week--Early Birds and Lunch Bunch. Our Early Birds program begins each day at 8 a.m. and is especially useful to parents who have early morning commitments. Lunch Bunch takes place immediately after school each day and ends at 1:30 pm. Children must bring a lunch from home. Please contact the office at 692-6673 about cost information for these two programs.
More information (tuitions, schedules, etc.) about our Weekday School can be found in our 2019-2020 Parent Handbook. The 2019-2020 Registration Form and required Medical Form are also now available online in pdf format. We must have both forms accompanied by the $110 registration fee and a copy of your child's immunization record in order for your child to attend our program. Our school director, Deborah Kirkman, would love to speak with you about The Weekday School. We would also love to show you around our preschool. If you would like more information about the school or information on available preschool scholarships, please email Deborah Kirkman or call her at 828.692.6673.
AND... stay tuned in early April for news about our summer program called Camp Funshine!
