The Nursery Ministries of Dunwoody UMC provide loving and safe childcare for children 6 months through 5 years old. Our experienced staff care for children in an age appropriate, Christian environment while you attend worship, Sunday School, Bible study or other church related activities.

At Dunwoody UMC, we aren’t just here for you on Sundays. One of our most popular and appreciated ministries is our weekday drop-in childcare program, Playtime at DUMC. All children are welcome to attend any day you need a little extra help meeting the time demands of your daily life. Also, Playtime at DUMC offers an excellent starting point for children just leaving mom and home for the first time.
