The Preschool and Climbing Tree are ministries of Christ Church United Methodist. Classroom experiences are interpreted in ways consistent with a Christian atmosphere, but children of all faiths are welcome!  

"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it"
                -- Proverbs 22:6



The Christ Church Preschool began in 1996, with the purpose of offering a faith-based preschool program to meet the needs of our community, and has evolved into a well-known and highly praised program. The Preschool meets in classrooms within the church facility.

The Climbing Tree began in 2001 as a ministry at The Woodlands United Methodist Church. When the church elected to close the Climbing Tree four years later, the staff and the 100+ enrolled families believed the ministry was providing a unique service to the community. In 2005, The Climbing Tree was formally adopted as a vital ministry at Christ Church and relocated to their current facility on the church's campus.

In 2013, the Christ Church Christian Education Center was formed to provide a single vision for the programs and to better leverage common resources and personnel. Although the programs have common management, each program continues to have its own unique qualities to best meet the needs of the families they serve.

On June 4, 2017 we will break ground on our new and dedicated Children's Education Facility at Christ Church. With almost 21,000 sq ft of educational space, The Climbing Tree, Christ Church Preschool, and our Christ Church Children's Ministries will have a state-of-the-art educational facility.
