Privette School

Broadmeadow is home to one of Jackson's premiere pre-school programs. A ministry of the church, the Privette School provides quality childcare and creative teaching methods based on the Reggio Emilia approach to learning. Children who attend the Privette School and other Reggio Emilia-inspired programs learn to use their "100 languages" to express themselves. Visit the Privette School's page to learn more about Broadmeadow's Reggio Emilia inspired pre-school program. Also keep up with the school on Facebook!

Children and Youth

Broadmeadow offers Sunday school classes for children ages 3 years to 12th grade. Sunday school begins at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday morning. The classes meet upstairs in the Education wing of the church, which is most easily accessed from the north side of the building.

We also have various activities throughout the year for the children.

We are partnering with our sister church St. Luke's United Methodist for Wednesday night programs for our children and youth. Groups meet at St. Luke's at 6:00 pm and are preceeded by a brown bag meal in the fellowship hall. This is a great opportunity for chidren and youth to grow in discipleship and to connect with other United Methodist kids from around Jackson. More info can be found here


A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers during Sunday School and worship.
