Parent Testimonial

Finding quality daycare/early learning centers  isn’t easy, much less for part-time care. None of the options I found made me feel good — until I met Julie Hanlin, the director of the Early Learning Center at St.Paul’s United Methodist Church. Julie runs  a program that is truly centered on providing children a structured nurturing and learning environment. A lot of other daycares promise that, but they don’t deliver — it just feels like kids are being ‘watched’ for a few hours, not truly cared for. I could only find stellar reviews of the program, and now I’m writing one of my own.

My two-year-old loves going to “school,” and I feel good about leaving him in his teachers’ and Julie’s hands. Parents bring their kids to St. Paul’s for years, and as their families grow, they bring their younger children. Many teachers are parents who fell in love with the program enough to become certified ELC teachers themselves.

The ELC at St. Paul’s is a gem, and meets a huge need for quality part-time child care and early learning in our community. I can’t recommend it enough.
