Looking for Child Care?
Child Care Ministry
For over ten years, the child care ministry of Speedway United Methodist Church has been providing a loving, safe environment where children can learn and have fun. Visit our website!
The Children’s Day: We provide a cold breakfast, a hot lunch and an afternoon snack. All children have periods of play time, learning time and afternoon naps.
We do not just ‘baby sit’ the children. We use the A-Beka curriculum in all classes. This is a Christian-themed, age-appropriate teaching program based on phonics. Our program is not denominationally specific but rather is based on beliefs held in common by all major Christian communions. At specific times during the year (such as Advent and Lent) the pastoral staff conducts chapel services for children.
Beyond the faith-based learning materials, our children are exposed to a wide variety of learning activities through arts and crafts, music classes, field trips and guest presentations. Pre-K and Kindergarten children have computer classes and musical instruction in addition to the traditional academic classes.
Parent’s Involvement: The active parent group sponsors an annual “Spring Fling” with games appropriate for small children, a silent auction and a delicious dinner. The annual “Hop-a-thon” raises funds which help keep the tuition costs low. Each March, the children turn into ‘frogs’ and have a great time trying to reach their hopping goals.
