Jacob’s Ladder is First United Methodist Church’s Weekday Children’s Ministry. At Jacob’s Ladder your child will be loved, taught, and cared for in a Christian environment. We are proud to be a Better Beginnings Center.  Our lead teachers have college degrees in Early Childhood Education, and all of our teachers have wisdom and experience.

Our mission is to teach the little ones about Jesus by how we love them, songs we sing with them, Bible stories, etc. The first years of life are when a child learns if the world is a safe place or not. We lovingly care for children and they learn to trust that the world is a wonderful place.

We care for Infants (6 weeks) through Pre-K. There are 5 rooms based on development, not just age. We focus on being a school family to help the children feel safe and loved at all times. We love the children as if they are our own and feel privileged to care for them. We serve breakfast and snacks, as well as lunch which is catered by Cater Rita’s. We open at 6:45 am and close at 5:15 pm.

Our curriculum is recommended by the State and includes Spanish and Sign Language.  Our curriculum’s link is http://www.funshineexpress.com/ (we use Buttercups for Toddler 2 and Fireflies for Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4)

We implement Conscious Discipline which focuses on seven skills to transform everyday discipline issues into teachable moments, equipping children with the social,emotional,and communication skills needed to manage themselves, resolve conflict and develop healthy behavior.
