The Early Childhood Program at Edenton Street United Methodist Church is an outreach ministry which is designed to meet the needs of parents and their preschool-age children (2 months to 5 years old).

Our loving staff is here to provide guidance, which will enhance physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual growth in a safe environment. The preschool runs from September to May and closely follows the Wake County Public School System traditional calendar. The hours of operation are 9:30 AM to 1 PM five days a week.

Our preschool prides itself on the development of the whole child with specific focus on social and emotional growth. We feel very strongly that these skills not only prepare the children for Kindergarten but for life in general as well. We do discuss academics every day; however it is always in a very relaxed atmosphere where the children feel safe and loved. A true “love for coming to school” is our first and foremost goal. Special programing includes music, science and art.
