About Our Program

Our mission is to provide quality childcare and education in a Christian environment that provides opportunities for spiritual, education, emotional and physical development.  We offer childcare to children ages 6 weeks - Pre K4.

It is the philosophy of the WCM and its staff that children, their families and the community benefit from  high-quality early childhood programs.  We believe that there is a critical link between a child's early experiences and later success in life.  We believe that you cannot separate childcare and education; children learn best through their play, interactions and experiences.  As a ministry of Aldersgate United Methodist Church, where the Center is located, the WCM receives guidance and spiritual support from the church and, in turn, participates in the mission and ministry of Aldersgate as it serves its membership as well as the community.

The WCM is proud of the quality of our teaching staff, many of whom have a long history with our Center.  Our teaching staff is a team of well-trained and experienced individuals.  Each member of our team brings to our staff their unique experiences and expertise allowing the WCM to provide a childcare and education experience that compares to no other.  The WCM provides a developmentally appropriate, curriculum-based approach to education while adding enrichment opportunities such as chapel, music, art, gymnastics and field trips. 

The WCM is an Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) licensed facility.
