Son-Shine Preschool, a child-centered ministry of Mercer United Methodist Church, has been created to offer a Christian program that contributes to the spiritual, emotional, social, physical, and educational development of all participating children. Each child will be valued as a child of God with unique talents and abilities, likes and dislikes, and a wealth of God-given potential.

Younger children will attend preschool 2 days a week – Tuesday, Thursday.
