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.
