Daycare

As a service to our community, our daycare ministry provides a safe, healthy learning environment where children can experience God's love. Our program nurtures and encourages the cognitive, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth of each child. Our caring atmosphere welcomes all ethnic backgrounds. Our desire is to support each individual's growth and to encourage their developing values, talents, and creativity.


Our Daycare serves families with children from 15 months old through 5 years old. We open at 6:00am and close at 5:30pm. For more information on our program, our directors, or to ask further questions, please scroll down below or call our Daycare Office at 812-523-5557.
