Wesley Preschool, Play Care, and Kindergarten

We believe that Jesus calls children to follow Him. Wesley’s Preschool, Play Care, and Kindergarten programs are ministries devoted to the unique needs of children from 15 months through 5 years of age. Children are nurtured in the love of Jesus to encourage their faith in God, their ability to relate to others, and the development of their self-esteem as they become the persons God wants them to be.
We believe that as we lead and affirm children, we are reaching out to families and to the community with the love of God. We are committed to building a spiritual foundation for today’s children and families and through them for the world tomorrow.

If you would like to register for the current school year, please call the WPPK office at (706) 869-9807.
