LOVING PRE-SCHOOL DAY CARE FOR YOUR CHILDREN

PURPOSE

The Children's Center was established by Aldersgate United Methodist Church, a non-profit organization, to provide an opportunity for children of the church and the community to be involved in a developmental environment of Christian nurture, which affirms we are children of God.

PHILOSOPHY
