First Fulshear Early Learning Center was established as an outreach ministry of FUMCF. Our purpose is to provide an opportunity for preschool age children in our community to work, play, learn and worship in a loving, safe, and caring Christian environment through experiences intended to foster a lifetime love for learning and create leaders in Christ. The FUMCF and the FFELC share a common mission of reaching ordinary people with the love of Christ and journeying with them in becoming extraordinary Christians. We are a caring organization where God ignites faith, changes lives and empowers people to reach children and families with the love of Christ.

The teaching staff of FFELC is selected on the basis of education, experience and the qualities of love and dedication to helping children grow in the early years. We believe the most important asset of our school is the quality of our teachers. All staff members are required to be CPR/First Aid certified, and have eight hours of pre-service training. Each year they must complete at least 24 hours of additional continuing education. As required by the state of Texas, all staff members are fingerprinted and have a background check in place. Substitutes are needed at times. We require that our substitutes have the same standards that we require of our permanent staff.
We are licensed by DFPS. The FFELC is inspected by the DFPS, county health, and local fire departments. We follow the guidelines set out for us regarding staff qualifications, facility, playground, health, safety, school and personnel records, schedules and rates.
