The Nursery Department at Ardmore First United Methodist Church is a special place for children ages 6 weeks through Pre-K. Keeping in mind Jesus’ instructions to “Let the little children come to me…” in Matthew 19:14, we serve several purposes throughout the week, and all provide an environment that is loving, positive and safe.


We want our kids to learn that God loves them, and we want to help them grow in love for God. Each month we focus on a virtue, like courage, hope or honor, as a way of teaching our kids this basic truth: I can trust God no matter what. 


Here at FUMC Ardmore, our vision is to Seek, Nourish, and Send. To seek out the youth we don’t already have, to nourish the ones we do, and then send them out into the world and make disciples of all nations. We are convinced by scripture that everyone who is in Christ has a special calling in the Kingdom of God.

Bright Beginnings at FUMC Preschool

Our desire at the FUMC Preschool is to provide a quality education in a safe, loving, nurturing environment, where the love of Christ is experienced and taught. Our mornings begin with classroom Devotions, Prayer and Flag Salute. In the classrooms, children explore literature, language, science, art, nature, creative dramatics, movement, music, math and reading readiness skills.  Time is allotted for indoor and outdoor play with both teacher planned activities and unstructured play.
