St. Barnabas' Early Education Center began in August 2001 as a Parent’s Day Out program. The program was an extension of the ministry of St. Barnabas United Methodist Church as a need was determined for a program that catered to parents of preschool children in our community. As we have continued to grow, the program has become a place where children can experience a balanced program of early education grounded in biblical values. Our mission is to provide children with a safe and nurturing environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
Our wonderful staff is continually trained, providing a safe, loving and godly environment for the children. We proudly offer:
- Small student/teacher ratios;
- Two teachers per class;
- Competitive prices;
- Academic-based curriculum with Christian values;
- The STEAM approach to learning through science, technology, engineering, art and math.

Early registration begins in February each year for families already enrolled in the program and members of St. Barnabas United Methodist Church.

This is a one-time annual fee and is non-refundable.
