Jacob’s Ladder is a Christian school for infants, toddlers, preschool, kindergarten and afterschool care. Jacob’s Ladder is a ministry of the First United Methodist Church in Alexander City. It is a happy place where children laugh, learn, sing, play, pray and make lifelong friends. Best of all, they grow in God's love under the watchful guidance of a devoted team of experienced & certified teachers. We feel it is important to form a partnership with parents as we work together to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6


"I have now had 3 children complete the Jacob’s Ladder program.  The youngest, Drew,  will graduate this year, which brings tears to my eyes.  I expect great things from from him, as the other two have excelled beyond expectations during the elementary years.  Jacob’s Ladder is a wonderful start and the children were and are no doubt ready for kindergarten. As children, they have felt loved, safe and academically confident!  Each teacher we have had has boosted our children’s confidence in the most incredible way.  The reputation that Jacob’s Ladder has built through the years is second to none, which is what first led me to Jacob’s Ladder 10 years ago.  However, the Christian leadership, friends and encouragement is what brought us back year after year, child after child.  God and our love for Jesus is the center of our family and Jacob’s Ladder encourages that spiritual growth in these precious little children during the years that are so instrumental to their future.  As a departing parent of 10 years, I want to say thank you to the wonderful people that make Jacob’s Ladder possible.  The Daughtry family loves each and every one of you and we will so miss you, the wonderful programs and the love everyone fells at Jacob’s Ladder!" - Stephanie Daughtry

"Jacob’sLadder has truly been a blessing for my family and my children. They have provided a wonderful, Christian atmosphere for my children to learn and feel safe in. This would be my first choice for pre-school and after-school care again and again. Thank you JL!" - Brandi Morgan
