Welcome to First Light!

As a ministry of First Methodist Church of Moorestown, First Light Early Learning Center will offer a developmentally appropriate, stimulating and nurturing environment that fosters Christian faith and discipleship. That is our mission and commitment to your child! Our certified teachers provide children an educational experience designed to help them grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

Classes are offered for 2 1/2, 3, 4 year olds, and developmental kindergarten-age children.

Our program is child-centered and experience-based because play is a young child’s work and their natural way of learning. We believe young children need to experience that they are loved, valued and enjoyed. 

First Light Early Learning Center is operated under the supervision of a Director and staffed with a certified teacher and an assistant in each class, with a low teacher/student ratio. All teachers have degrees in early childhood and/or elementary education.

Education that you can trust.

Our curriculum follows the New Jersey State Department of Education’s Preschool Teaching & Learning Expectations: Standards of Quality.

  • Morning classes run from 9:00am-11:30am and afternoon classes run 12:30pm-3:00pm.
  • We offer a Lunch Bunch program from 11:30am-12:30pm that features a variety of themes: art, music, dance, science, and cooking.
  • For our older children, we offer a 2-hour lunch Enrichment Program that runs from 11:30am-1:30pm and offers children additional opportunities of learning.
  • Our 3-year-old, 4-year-old and DK classes have a weekly music class and our 4-year-old and DK classes have a weekly art class. All of our children also sing weekly in Chapel.

Please note, children do not need to be potty-trained to attend First Light.
