A Workspace with Childcare?
That’s right.

First German United Methodist Church is making friends with working parents in Glendale and surrounding areas.

As childcare becomes increasingly unaffordable, parents who work remotely still need a place to focus and get work done outside the home.


Workspace Desks

We have a comfortable workspace where you can be part of a community with like-minded people. This environment cultivates collaboration between members and helps amplify professional and family networks.

We provide indoor and outdoor play spaces for the little ones. Our staff members are background-checked, CPR-trained, and love to work with children. We provide supervision from 3 months to 4 years old. At the FGUMC WORKSPACE & playschool your children not only get to play, they also get to learn new skills while having fun.

Classes & Workshops for the Families

Join us for this full German immersion class that started it all. Founded in 2010, this class has been a helpful tool for bilingual families whose goal is to have their kids converse and socialize with their peers in the target language. The curriculum is play-based. We sing, dance, play, explore, read stories, and do simple arts & crafts (many of which are traditional seasonal crafts of Germany). Worksheets are integrated for older kids.

0-2 yrs – Saturday 10 AM (singing, dancing, “Kniereiter”, sensory play)
3-5 yrs – Saturday 1 PM (singing, dancing, arts & crafts, learning, worksheets)

Available Dates: 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/2, 11/9, 11/16, 11/23, 12/7, 12/14
