Weddington Christian Preschool is a weekday children’s ministry of Weddington United Methodist Church. We serve preschool children ages 2 through age 5/Transitional Kindergarten, and their families. We are located on two campuses: 1) at the main WUMC campus at 13901 Providence Rd and 2) at the Bonds Grove campus at 8215 Bonds Grove Church Rd.
We firmly believe that each child is a unique creation of our Father God, deserving of respect and love. We provide an environment that allows children to discover the lessons Jesus taught through prayer, instruction, and play each day. We also endeavor to maintain a warm and welcoming atmosphere that will minister not only to the children but also to you, the caregiver, and our very precious WCP staff members. Thank you for your interest in Weddington Christian Preschool.
WCP follows the Union County Public School calendar for holidays. We start our preschool year after Labor Day and finish in the third week of May. Children attend from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m, Monday through Thursday. Children may attend 2,3, or 4 days per week – please see class offerings by age listed below.

Car rider drop off and pick up lines are available to bring children into and out of our building each day. The lines generally start up by the third week of September after children have settled into their new classrooms and parents and teachers have gotten familiar with each other. Morning drop off will run from 8:50 a.m. to 9:05 a.m. and afternoon pick up from 12:50 p.m. to 1:05 p.m. Late or early arrivers should plan to park, sign in, and walk to children’s classes, entering at the Education Wing doors nearest the playground. Car rider drop off and pick up provide safety, security, and efficiency to these bustling times of the day.
Registration is held in January for the following school year. Please visit the Registration page for more information on how to register your child for Weddington Christian Preschool.
Tours are offered throughout the preschool year. Please see the Tours page for tour dates and times.
WCP opened Wait Lists for the 2018-2019 school year for age levels that filled during our January registration. Wait Lists remain active until registration for the following school year is complete. Wait Lists start fresh for each school year after the January registration period. To add your child’s name to a wait list we need the following information:
- We need your child’s name (please spell it for us), date of birth (including year of birth), gender, and home and/or cell numbers.
- Children must be age appropriate by August 31st for an age level list.
Wait lists are numbered in the order received. However, once classes are set, we may go to the next child who appears to be the best fit by birth date or gender for that specific class. This is to ensure that all children are placed in the environment that provides the most opportunities for success.
WCP does not screen or test children. We gratefully accept the children God places in our care. However, WCP reserves the right to refer children to other programs if the need should occur.
Wait list names must be refreshed during the first week of September to remain active. Please call our office for important information. Information on more local programs is available through Child Care Resources (704) 238-8800.
