The mission of the Weekday School is to provide quality child development within a Christian environment where boys and girls can come to know themselves as children of God.


The Oak Ridge United Methodist Church views the Weekday School as an extension of their Christian Education Program and believes each child enrolled deserves an opportunity for growth in all areas of life - physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and most importantly, spiritual - as a continued, interrelated process.  To achieve these goals, ORWS believes that the teaching methods and techniques used must be based on a proper understanding of child development and basic concepts of the Christian faith.


ORWS offers appropriate play activities that are based on the child's individual needs, interests, and abilities. ORWS pledges that staff will constantly work to foster good attitudes in children through a positive example. Under the leadership of qualified individuals, classes will include a balance of biblical concepts, developmentally appropriate academic learning centers, creative artwork, music, outdoor play, conversations, story times, dramatic plays, and group activities. The ORWS program is designed to partner with the family and to recognize that parents are the child's first and primary caregiver.
