what we offer

We provide childcare in a full-time, year-round program for children from 6 weeks to 4 years. 

Children First Learning Center is a ministry of First United Methodist Church in downtown Gulfport.  At the Learning Center, all families are welcomed and valued. We strive to provide a program that is inclusive, culturally diverse, and designed to meet the needs of our community.  We want every child to experience and share the love of God and to take that love with them into the world.  

We support the essential nurturing provided by parents. Our emphasis is offering experiences closely related to those your child has at home.  We build on the uniqueness of each individual child.  We provide a safe and stimulating environment to further strengthen your child’s quest for independence and self-confidence.

Open Monday - Friday: 6:30 am to 5:30 pm
