Weekday Ministries Child Care Center is a state-licensed,preschool and day care center for children from infancy through school age. The center is an outreach ministry of Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church, in response to the need of families for quality child care as well as a constructive nursery school experience. Our goal is to help parents in the community and the church to care for and educate their young children in a loving, Christian environment that enhances each child's development. The nonprofit child care center is designed to accommodate two separate needs in our coordinated programs. The programs are nonsectarian and open to all children.

Day Care   

The Day Care Program is licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We serve families with high-quality care in a safe, nurturing environment that meets the needs of various age groups. We are open year round from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. M-F.

Caring for young children means more than just keeping them safe. It means planning meaningful activities for individual abilities and being able to assess progress and make adjustments when necessary. The staff is composed of supervisors with college degrees in areas such as child development and education as well as trained assistants. Education at offsite facilities as well as in-service training — including CPR and first aid — are an ongoing part of our staff education.



The Preschool Program, begun in 1966, provides a constructive, developmentally appropriate experience for children ages three, four and five. The school features professional, certified teachers with qualified backgrounds and experience. Our facility is large and well equipped,

Reading readiness, pre-math, science, art, music and much more are taught each day through a hands-on approach. Many of our daycare children come to PreK, but there are many others who attend classes here who are not enrolled in the daycare program.

The Transition Class is designed for children who are not quite ready for kindergarten, or who just miss the cut-off date. The “nearly”kindergarten curriculum includes music, reading, math, science and art.

Our Philosophy     
Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church’s full-service day care and preschool program offers parents peace of mind. Small groups sizes and warm, patient caregivers exemplify God's love while teaching children using developmentally appropriate strategies to help them learn about the world around them.We stimulate and foster intellectual growth while reinforcing the same values of compassion, courtesy and respect that you teach at home. Our warm, patient caregivers have been making children feel comfortable, safe, and loved for over 25 years.

Admissions, the provisions of services, and referrals of clients shall be made without regard to race, color, religious creed, disability, ancestry, national origin (including limited English proficiency), age or sex.

Program services shall be made accessible to eligible persons with disabilities through the most practical and economically feasible methods available. These methods include, but are not limited to, equipment redesign, the provision of aides, and the use of alternative service delivery locations. Structural modifications shall be considered only as a last resort among available methods.
