The purpose of The Weekday School at UPUMC is to build a strong, Christian foundation of love and learning in every child through nurturing and challenging them appropriately in all developmental areas.

Core Values

We believe and are committed to:

  • Sharing spiritual life lessons
  • Offering developmentally appropriate curriculum
  • Providing a caring, safe, nurturing environment designed for children
  • Advocating for and supporting children and families
  • Fostering the sense of community developed throughout our history


We seek to create enthusiastic children who experience and exemplify God’s love. These children will gain leadership skills and sharing spirits through a cultivated zest for learning, allowing them to become the most of who God created them to be.


The goal of The Weekday School curriculum is to provide each child with meaningful learning opportunities to attain age-appropriate skills. The WDS curriculum is based on a thematic framework. Here, learning materials and activities are organized around specific age-appropriate units. Play is a central component of The WDS curriculum and is woven throughout each thematic unit. Through play, children attach meaning to the thematic learning experiences provided within our classroom, while also acquiring developmental skills.
