Early Learning Center

Early Learning Center (ELC)

 Gadsden First United Methodist Church is proud to be the home of a unique pre-school and learning program for children, The Early Learning Center, or ELC. This wonderful Christian educational opportunity for the youngest members of our community is available for Babies, Toddlers, Two Year Olds, 3 Year Old Kindergarten, and 4 Year Old Kindergarten.

Registration and participation in the program is dependent on the space available, and priority is given to members of First United Methodist Church and to currently enrolled children, and siblings of currently enrolled children.

The ELC operates from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday, from August to May based on the school year of the Gadsden City Schools and observes holidays, weather days, and school closings as announced by the Gadsden City School System.

A summer enrollment program is available. Please check with the director for hours of operation and days that school is open in the summer.
