The purpose of WEE World is to provide a variety of experiences that will encourage learning and healthy development in a Christ-centered ministry. Through this ministry, your child will have many opportunities to experience growth intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
The curriculum used in this ministry is “WEE Learn” published by Lifeway Christian Resources. Supplemental materials are also used in developing units of study.
WEE World is accredited by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, Inc. in Tallahassee, Florida.

At WEE World we believe:
WEE World Child Development Center admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
