The Weekday School has been providing quality early childhood education for the past 59 years. Our school is an important ministry of our church and an outreach to the community.
The WDS prides itself on hiring qualified educators. Children are nurtured, loved and educated by a staff who is highly trained in Early Childhood education and continues to grow by attending ongoing training.
We are Quality Approved by the state of Arkansas and are licensed by the Arkansas Department of Human Services. We hope these endorsements provide confidence to parents when choosing a preschool for their children.
