The mission of Wesley Christian Child Development Center, a ministry of the Wesley United Methodist Church in Macomb, is to provide quality, developmentally appropriate, family-centered, Christian child care in a safe, friendly, supportive, environment that promotes physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth. 

All of the staff at Wesley Christian Child Development Center welcome you and your child to our programs. It is the intention of the center to serve the families of the community regardless or race, religion, or financial condition. 

Wesley Christian Child Development Center is a nonprofit ministry of the Wesley United Methodist Church in Macomb. We began serving children of this community in March 1974. This center is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and family Services. The Wesley United Methodist Church provides the center with housing and utilities, the funds for all other operating expenses (salaries, furniture, equipment, food, educational supplies, toys, phones, insurance, etc) comes from tuition and private donations. The Wesley Child Care Center works under the auspices of the Administrative Board of the Church who makes decisions and sets policy concerning general operation of the Center (ie tuition rates, payment policies, holidays, grants) with recommendation from the Child Center Board. 

The curriculum at Wesley Child Center includes a variety of learning experiences such as language development, reading readiness, music and movement, art, science, nature study, field trips and indoor/outdoor play. There are frequent positive warm interactions between adult and children, varied age-appropriate materials and regular communication with parents who are always welcom visitors. We provide programs for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years. Full time care is provided until your child enters kindergarten and after school care can be provided to those children who attend Macomb Schools.
