Early Start

Kingston United Methodist Church Early Start is a non-licensed, non for profit, parent day out program. It is a ministry of the church and serves children ages 2-4. Our program runs on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30am until 2:30pm. Each child may attend, at maximum, two days. This time is filled with painting, singing, learning, and playing. Most importantly, as a faith based program, our children learn songs about Jesus and learn stories from the Bible every day. Every morning we provide each child with a snack and drink. Parents provide lunches- no peanut products. We follow the Roane County School Schedule and offer a summer program.
