Church Weekday Education (CWE) helps churches minster to and meet the needs of parents and children by providing quality preschool and child care in a Christian environment.
Church weekday ministries helps churches provide a safe and nurturing place for children. Ministries include Parent’s Morning Out, half-day or full-day preschool, and before and after school care for school-aged children.
The North Carolina Baptist Church Weekday Education Association (NCBCWEA) provides opportunities for networking and staff development. Association members are eligible to receive registration discounts to annual CWE training events approved by the N.C. Division of Child Development. Members may also list their center on this page with a link to the church/center’s website or email.

CWE seeks to provide education and growth that emphasizes cognitive, emotional and spiritual growth in young children in the local church. We offer resources and coaching related to providing safe and loving environments that introduce spiritual concepts at appropriate levels to empower disciple-making in the home.
CWE’s mission is to provide exceptional childcare, while serving as an extension of the local church. We desire to reach entire families by aligning church weekday education with the existing ministries of the church.
