Aldersgate Playschool

Aldersgate Playschool has served as a ministry of Aldersgate United Methodist Church since 1973. We are a children’s ministry to teach God’s love for each of us and to help the children grow socially, intellectually, and learn to respect themselves and others. We are obligated to provide a happy, safe, and clean Playschool. Each child will receive nurturing love, a smile and a listening ear each day.

Playschool Classes

Playschool creates a fun and safe environment where your child matures and grows spiritually, emotionally, cognitively and socially. Our activity centers create a “play” environment where the children learn to stretch their imaginations and develop their self-confidence, while learning to respect each other. Children learn through play. Each classroom has a teacher and assistant in the room at all times. Each class has an assigned time for outside play on the playground or in bad weather in the gym. Aldersgate Playschool classes provide experiences that meet children’s needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas – physical, social, emotional, language, and intellectual.


Registration will be held this year beginning the first week of March. It is on a first come first serve basis. Registration fee is $55 for one child and $35 for a family of two or more.
