History

In August 1994, Wee Care Preschool, a self-supporting, nonprofit ministry of Pine Valley United Methodist Church opened its doors for the first time, in support of the young children of PVUMC and the community. For many months prior to that time, Linda Gregson, Kristin Bednarczyk, Jim Van Hook, and several active and concerned members of the church had worked diligently to design and finance a quality comprehensive preschool program. This was based on affordability and Christian values that were desperately needed for the area’s stay at home parents. The program was designed as a half day program for 2, 3 and 4-year-olds. Enrollment was limited due to the available classroom space. With the support of the members of PVUMC and the community, Wee Care doubled in size for the 1995 school year, adding additional classes and a state registered kindergarten program.

Further growth was made available with the development of the Christian Life Center, in 1997. Wee Care moved into the building utilizing the classrooms during the week that were also used for children on Sunday mornings.

In August 2013, Wee Care started its twentieth year of operation and is still going strong today.
