Aldersgate Day School
Welcome to Aldersgate Day School!

The word ‘Aldersgate’ comes from a place where, nearly 300 years ago, a priest named John Wesley first felt his heart on fire with love of God and love for his neighbor.
At Aldersgate Day School our goal is to offer the same opportunity to the children of our congregation and our community.
Educating since 1962, Aldersgate Day School is a weekday, half-day ministry for children 12 months old to pre-K.
At Aldersgate Day School, your children are (almost) as important to us as they are to you; that’s why we provide a safe, loving, Christian environment for your children.
Jesus said that for anyone to understand his Kingdom they will first have to become like little children; that’s why at Aldersgate Day School, we’re committed not only to teaching your children, we’re committed to treating them as though we have something to learn from them as well.
For over 15 years, our Day School Director, Patty Spitnale, has been dedicated to providing families a safe, educational and loving environment where our talented team of teachers can guide your children in building their minds, building friendships and building character.

*PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF NEW PROGRAM OFFERINGS*
The Day School is excited to announce the continuation of two new program offerings for the 2019/2020 school year! The Day School has added the option for parents to choose a five-hour 5-day fours class (9am-2 pm) and our fabulous PreK class has transitioned to either a traditional three-hour option or a full five-hour program (9 am-2 pm daily)!
The purpose of these new class offerings is to afford parents more options when choosing the right class program for their children. The extra hours will be instructional, but will also include a short lunch break and the 9 am – 2 pm classes will include an additional short break for classroom music and movement or playground time.
We hope parents will welcome the opportunity to choose a class program that best meets the needs of their children and their family. If there are any questions about any of the classes, please do not hesitate to contact the Director either by phone, email or in person.
