History

In the early 1960s, a group of dedicated educators, ministers and church members laid the groundwork for a program that would meet the needs of church members and the surrounding community. Working to create a facility that would promote the developmental approach envisioned by these leaders, the UCC Weekday School opened its doors for the first time on September 11, 1967. The school began with two classes of 15 children each taught by two teachers, and by the end of the 1960s, UCC Weekday School grew to 36 children enrolled in classes for three-year-olds and four-year-olds.

Today, UCC Weekday School is located in two wings of the first floor of the church. A significant addition to the structure of the church in 2001 included an expansion of the school that also allowed a maximum enrollment increase of up to 362 students. The current staff which includes one director, four staff members and forty teachers work with students in Cribs (eight weeks) through a half-day licensed Kindergarten (five year olds).
