Weekday School

The Weekday School at Cave Spring United Methodist Church has been a part of the Cave Spring Community for over 40 years, and the church lovingly supports this ministry. Our preschool families are invited to participate in the life of our church through worship activities and events like Trunk-or-Treat, Breakfast with Santa, Bunny Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt, and Vacation Bible School.

Prospective parents are invited to visit the school to observe the classrooms. To arrange an appointment or to have further questions answered, please call the church office at (540) 989-3673 or email weekdayschool@cavespringumc.org.

The Philosophy of the Weekday School at Cave Spring United Methodist Church is to encourage the growth and meet the needs of the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, socially, mentally and physically. We are a bridge between home and “big school” and strive to help build the self-esteem and confidence that every child needs.

We Offer a personally customized experience to meet the needs of your family and help you navigate through the preschool years. The Weekday School is open 9 AM until Noon, Monday through Thursday, beginning in September and ending in May. We follow the Roanoke County Public School schedule for holidays, closings and delays. There are options in each class to tailor your child’s schedule to meet the needs of your family.
