Early Learning Academy

First Methodist Church began its mother’s day out program in the 1960s. In 1969, it became a preschool, which through the years, has developed into one of the finest early educational programs in the Tulsa area. Our administrators, teachers and aides are dedicated individuals with hearts for children and early childhood education.
