Wilshire’s Preschool Ministry

Nurturing young hearts in God’s love.

Through Sunday School, mission education, music, our Early Childhood Learning Center and other preschool programs, Wilshire reaches out to minister to even the smallest of God’s children. The preschool ministry serves children from birth through pre-K and their families.

From VBS to Cooking Camp, Wilshire offers a variety of summer experiences for children and preschoolers. | Learn more

Sunday mornings

Sunday School

Preschool Sunday School teachers begin by teaching the simple Bible truths that God loves us. The ministry applies positive Bible teachings that relate to your child’s daily experiences, which in turn lay foundations for continuing spiritual growth. Sunday School starts at 9:45 a.m., and our preschool classes meet in a secure hallway.

Worship Care is provided for preschoolers during worship. This is staffed by both paid personnel and church volunteers who love children. As children enter kindergarten, they begin attending worship with their parents. Each fall, a special class in worship education is offered for incoming kindergartners.


Music, Missions & More

Older preschoolers, ages 3 and 4, engage in preschool choir and other activities on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. during the school year. It’s part of Wednesday Night Live, which begins with dinner for the whole family at 5 p.m. in Community Hall.

Summer Events for Preschoolers

Vacation Bible School

VBS creates opportunities for preschoolers to learn more about the Bible and their place in God’s world. A wide range of hands-on activities opens the door to learning while having a good time. Usually held one week in June from 9 a.m. to noon. Free.

Preschool friends camp

Preschool Friends Camp is similar to Vacation Bible School but is just for preschoolers and is held later in the summer. Recent themes of this free camp have included “I Can Be a Good Friend” and “I Love My Family.”


Wilshire MomCo

Formerly known as MOPS, Wilshire MomCo offers encouragement, spiritual nourishment and fellowship to mothers of children ages birth through kindergarten. This is an international movement, and Wilshire’s group has been going strong since 1997. MomCo meets during the school year on designated Friday mornings. Learn more >


Early Childhood Learning Center

Wilshire’s Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) has been a licensed early childcare program for more than 25 years. ECLC offers a comprehensive approach to education for preschoolers from age 3 months to Pre-K and Kinder-bridge. Learn more >


Adoption & Foster Care Ministry

Wilshire’s Adoption and Foster Care Ministry seeks to build a community of encouragement and support with adults and children who come together through adoption and foster care. During the school year we offer foster and adoptive families a monthly Parents Nights Out with childcare for infants through grade 6. Biological children in these families are also welcome.
