Our Program

We offer caring Christ-centered infant and toddler programs beginning at age 6 weeks. We provide a Christian atmosphere where a child can play, learn and grow as an individual. We are opened year-round and are closed on the major holidays.


All of our staff are committed Christian people with a heart for children. Each classroom has a lead teacher and an assistant. All staff are carefully screened and trained to provide excellence in a nurturing environment. 


We use One In Christ Curriculum in all of our early childhood classrooms. The curriculum is designed with short and long-range goals in mind for your child's learning.

Infant Care

Babies receive highly personal care from a primary caregiver. The curriculum is tailored to the unique individual care for each child. Special activities are planned for children according to their age and development that includes Jesus time, stories, sensory activities, small and large motor experiences, and outdoor time. Each child is provided their own crib. Children can join the infant room at 6 weeks of age. 

Toddler Care

At about age 12 months children join the toddler room. Toddlers still receive highly personal care and nurturing from their caregivers. Toddlers also enjoy age-appropriate activities in art, literacy, music, science, gym, outdoor play, and Jesus time. Children nap on cots. A morning and afternoon snack are included.
