Educational and Developmental Center & Stay 'N Play

Our Educational and Developmental Center offers three weekday programs within a safe, warm Christian environment for children 2-5 years of age.

Our Preschool program is designed to facilitate a young child's total development. We offer a nice balance of teaching academics and developing age appropriate social skills. The children become actively involved in units of study through play, reading readiness, math, language development, science, cooking, music, physical education and computers. Classes meet half days, two, three or five times per week. Preschool classes are available for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. We offer a Supplemental class which focuses on individual developmental needs

Stay n' Play provides high quality childcare for children 2-5 years old. The children participate in planned activities, free play, outside recreation, story-time and special theme days. We provide a snack for the children while they stay with us.

A summer program is offered for children 3-5 years old. The children enjoy fun "hands-on" activities, stories, music, art and crafts, games and snacks. Classes meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Each week has a different theme with fun activities.

Our Center has a wonderful, dedicated staff. Our lead teachers are degreed. Our entire staff attends continuing education classes and workshops and become certified in CPR each year. Our staff is nurturing, loving and experienced in teaching young children.
