Wee Friends Preschool was started in the spring of 1975 with a three month trial. The vision of Pastor Earl K. Ziegler, it was promoted by Mechanic Grove Church of the Brethren member Marlene Eckman, who became the school's first lead teacher. The school has grown to a total possible enrollment of 144 children, most of whom come from the community outside the congregation. The school currently includes five classes for 4 to 5 year olds, four classes of 3 and 4 year olds and three classes for 2 to 3 year olds. Each year the church offers some partial financial scholarships to help families with special needs.
