Weekday Kids

#1FLUM Weekday Kids is an outreach of Forest Lake United Methodist Church to the community and endeavors to be Enriching Children’s Lives With God’s Love by providing a nurturing Christian environment and developmentally appropriate learning activities for the children in our care.

All children and families regardless of their race, creed, faith or cultural background are welcome to participate in our programs.

Information packets with a Parent Handbook, Registration Forms, and other information can be picked up at the Weekday Kids Office. Parents are invited to stop by to tour the classrooms and meet the teachers.

Our Philosophy and Practice

All children deserve a chance to learn and all parents are entitled to the assurance that their child is being nurtured in a safe and loving environment.

We recognize that all children are individuals with different personalities and different rates of growth.


We respect and promote these diversities in individuals, abilities, and experiences for all ages, infants through preschoolers and elementary through middle school ages.

#4Our children are encouraged and guided in their development through play – a child’s work. This will include; art, music, physical activities, hands-on activities, social interaction, dramatic play, books and stories. Math and literacy skills are advanced through the mediums of play.

A daily schedule will be followed to provide a planned environment of developmentally appropriate learning activities and play to facilitate development of the “whole child.”

We endeavor to provide warm, sensitive, and affectionate teachers, care givers, after school and summer camp counselors and a positive environment to provide a predictable and consistent world away from home for our young ones.
