The Children’s Place is a comprehensive childcare ministry of Anniston First United Methodist Church.


Our ministry accepts children 6 weeks old through 5 years old. In the summer months, we offer a summer program for
school-age children.


We care for our students from
6:30 A.M. until 5:30 P.M.
Monday through Friday. 

When four-year-old Hannah visited the Anniston Natural History Museum, she loved that the cave was a little frightening, but would run ahead and squat down and jump out to frighten her parents, Revs Dale and Kelly Clem.  She was interested in the Africa room, especially the size of the elephant, and could name many of the animals.

Learning and Play activities and enrichment are offered for every age group. Circle-Time is held in each classroom daily. Circle -time includes singing, dancing, storytelling, and games. We also cover letters, numbers, shapes, colors, etc. Our Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 classes cover topics for kindergarten readiness. 

On Wednesdays, we have Chapel for our

Three and four-year-olds. Anniston First clergy or Children's Director Emmalie Whitney provides a devotional for our kiddos. Music and Worship Arts Director can often be found in the Chapel with our TCP children leading them with music. 

Our indoor and outdoor play areas provide ample space to exercise and to learn through play. TCP is blessed with the Lucy Bryan Memorial Playground. The toddler age groups have their own playground with sidewalks, which are great for chalk and ride “on top” toys, and age-appropriate equipment on a soft rubberized surfacing. Our older children get to enjoy a larger playground with swings, slides, and plenty of room to move!

Security is a priority here at TCP. All classrooms, play areas, and hallways are equipped with cameras. All entrances are locked and secured by an electronic door system. Access to the building is granted by keycard or manually.
