Our trained nursery employees, along with congregational volunteers, create a nurturing and Christ-centered experience as the children ages birth through three years of age begin to develop their worship routines. Located in room 201, the nursery is open from 9:15 to 12:00 noon for morning Sunday School and Worship.

AventWest Children's Mentoring

The focus of the efforts of the AventWest Community Development Corporation (AWCDC) is the operation of AventWest Children’s Mentoring, an after-school tutoring program. We host students living in the AventWest community who are identified as needing both academic support and economic opportunity. They are transported from their homes to the program sites, provided supervised physical activity, a healthy snack or hot meal, academic assistance with homework and basic skills, and transported back home two evenings a week during the school year.

Weekday Preschool

The Western Boulevard Presbyterian Preschool, established in 1957, is a non-profit preschool serving 40 children age 18 months – 4 years old, Monday through Friday, 9:00–12:30 during the traditional school year. WBPP strives to provide a developmentally appropriate learning environment for young children socially, physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. The preschool also promotes the sharing of cultures and family experiences to further develop each child’s acceptance of him/herself along with a positive awareness of others. WBPP is governed by a volunteer board of church members, the preschool director and parent representatives.

Library

The church is fortunate to have an attractive, well-stocked library on the main floor of the Educational Building. With its small conference table, it is an ideal setting for individual study or for a small group meeting.
