Our History

In the wake of the devastating fire in 2011 at South Seaville United Methodist Church that destroyed the 1884 building, the plans to rebuild included a place for children of the community. These plans came to be The Learning Garden, a licensed child care center to hold as many as 56 chidlren per day! Since the church was re-opened in 2014, with The Learning Garden nestled right into the south end of the building, children from all over our area have gathered here to grow, to learn, and to discover their own faith. 

With nearly 80 children enrolled full and part time currently, The Learning Garden has evolved into a safe, nurturing, and loving haven for children not only in our small community, but throughout Cape May County.
