My Friend’s House Preschool

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14

My Friend’s House Child Development Center (MFHCDC) was opened in 1980 with after school care. In 1982, it expanded to include infant, toddler and preschool care. The name “My Friend’s House” suggests two things. First, children are being nurtured and cared for in the church, which is the Lord’s house and the Lord is our friend. Second, among the staff and children there are loving friends. My Friend’s House Child Development Center is an integral portion of the Children’s Ministry of Northwest Hills UMC.

Through this program, the church ministers to the community and makes responsible use of the education facility. The program openly acknowledges its Christian environment through programming, but does not attempt to instruct in church doctrine.


My Friend’s House Child Development Center (C.D.C.) aims to provide high quality child care at a reasonable cost in a safe and loving environment in which each child is accepted and has the freedom to develop socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually.
