Our teachers also incorporate Bible stories and songs into classroom activities and routines.
Our Preschool Program serves children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. We also provide an after-school program for children in kindergarten through fifth grade.
The Children’s Center is a ministry of Cokesbury United Methodist Church with the purpose of providing quality care and early education in a safe and supportive Christian environment where your children are able to grow in body, mind, and spirit. We provide your children with the opportunity to be independent thinkers and lifelong learners through Christian principles and teacher-guided activities.
History of CCC
In 1967, Cokesbury United Methodist Church started a single kindergarten class. The first few years, the kindergarten class offered an opportunity for students from Pensacola Junior College to gain practical application experience. As the need grew for child care in the community of Northwest Pensacola, Cokesbury decided to offer complete child care.
In 1972, the kindergarten class expanded into the new building behind the church, officially opening its doors as Cokesbury Methodist Children’s Center, accepting infants through 5-year -olds.
Today, the Cokesbury Children’s Center serves 140 children and employs over 40 people with a firm commitment to the children. Cokesbury now has several teachers that have been serving for over 10 years.
Cokesbury Children’s Center is proud to serve Pensacola's families and continue to do so with a heart for Christ.
