University United Methodist Church is proud to offer a faith based preschool for your children and your family. Our Child Development Center (University CDC) is here to help raise children of faith.

University United Methodist Child Development Center is a non-profit facility and is owned by University United Methodist Church. We are committed to providing quality education and loving care to young children. The school was founded by deaconesses of the Methodist Church more than 50 years ago. Our goal at University United Methodist Child Development Center is to reach the whole child by creating an atmosphere in which the spiritual, mental, social and physical facets of a child’s personality and character can be nurtured and developed.

We believe that early childhood is a very important period of life when children learn an enormous amount about their everyday world. During the preschool years the young child acquired lifelong attitudes toward learning. We believe that young children learn best in an environment where they are free to manipulate materials, explore, discover and make choices. It is our goal at University United Methodist Child Development Center to create an environment in which the child’s self-esteem is nurtured, his/her curiosity about the world is challenged and his/her relationships with others and God are given opportunity to grow and develop.

We have children as young as six weeks through kindergarten. For more infomation please contact our Director, Barbara Abair at or call the Child Development Center at 817-926-8706.
