1973: St. John's School for Little Children is founded by a group of St. John's United Methodist Church members who believed that a good preschool was a great foundation for formal education. We started very small, meeting in church Sunday School rooms and eventually crowding into every possible area of the church to hold classes.
1998: St. John's UMC builds Wendt Hall and the new Education Wing, allowing for 8 spacious classrooms for the Little School.
2002: Patsy Carpenter, the long-time school director retires. Wanda Burkett, the current director, takes her place. Because of these two women's passion for early childhood education and professionalism, we have one of the lowest staff turnover rates in the area. Several of our teachers have decades of experience within our school.
2013: St. John's School for Little Children celebrates 40 years of excellence in early childhood education!
