60 Years

In 1947, Belmont United Methodist Church opened one of the first church-based preschools in Tennessee. The program, currently known as the Belmont Weekday School, was established to provide education for pre-school children.

The State of Tennessee Department of Human Services licenses the Belmont Weekday School. The Weekday School has also achieved the highest recognition the State of Tennessee awards, a Three Star Rating. The Weekday School provides the majority of the classroom and playground equipment, including books, toys, furniture, tricycles, etc. for all of the BUMC children to use and enjoy! (more…)

Scholarships for the fall session

The Weekday School is currently accepting scholarship applications for the fall session.  The deadline for turning in the application is July 15th.  In addition to your application, financial and work history information is necessary.  If you currently receive a scholarship and would like to be considered for the fall, please let Jean know.  You will need to fill out another application.  Please see Jean or EnaShea for the necessary paperwork, or if you have questions regarding scholarships and their availability.  The WDS prides itself on being one of the few preschools in Nashville that offers partial assistance for our families who qualify.  This is made possible from continued donations and fundraising events.
