Morris Memorial presents a daycare ministry designed to help a child grow socially, emotionally, and physically.

We believe that early learning experiences play an integral part in their intellectual, spiritual and physical development.  The children are nurtured in an atmosphere of Christian love while exposed to a variety of teachings and activities.  Morris Enrichment Center (MEC) is an essential part of the Christian outreach program of Morris Memorial United Methodist Church.

Daycare is available from ages six weeks to age 12 years; Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Children are served breakfast, lunch and snacks.  

Tuition is charged weekly and we offer 2 day, 3 day and full week rates. We accept cash, checks and credit card payments. Call MEC for information on their rates and programs (304-925-1413).



Yes, MEC is now part of the free Pre-K program for four year olds provided by the state of West Virginia.  MEC is a collaborative site and follows the Kanawha County year round school calendar.  Pre-K classes are offered Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.  After care is available.


When school ends for the summer, MEC provides Summer Camp for 5-12 year olds.  Camp is Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.  Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided.  Field trips may include the Clay Center, Beckley Coal Mine, Hawk’s Nest, bowling, swimming and the National Guard.  Please contact the Director, Georgeanne Leake, for information on fees and start dates.


MEC offers an after school program for children kindergarten through 5th grade.  This program provides a place for the children to be dropped off after school, given a snack, helped with their homework, and guidance until their parents/guardians are able to pick them up.  We currently have a bus route with Chamberlain and Kanawha City Elementary Schools. We also pick up students at Ruffner and Piedmont Elementary Schools.
