We care about kids at First Church and know that as a parent, you want only the best for your child.   The preschool program has been a cornerstone of child care and development in Jefferson City since 2004.   The Steps of Faith Preschool Program at First United Methodist Church offers….

  • A loving, nurturing, Christian environment for children age six weeks through five years old that encourages growth through exploration and new discoveries.
  • Developmentally appropriate activities designed to enrich the social, emotional, physical, cognitive, creative and spiritual aspect of each and every child.
  • The use of theme based, Christian curriculum with lessons surrounding a weekly bible verse.
  • We have two Pre-K classes that focus not only on setting a foundation of a Christ-filled life, but also working on Kindergarten readiness skills.   These skills will help prepare children for the transition and expectations that the county schools have upon entering Kindergarten.

The program runs from 9:00am-2:00pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  The Steps of Faith Preschool follows the Jefferson County School schedule.  A copy of this schedule is available in the Parent Handbook.
