PlayCare is a flexible childcare program for infants (6 months) to school age. You can sign your little one up for once a week (or more), once a month, or once in a while.
PlayCare is a chance for young children to break away from Mom & Dad and have some fun while Mom & Dad get a well deserved and guilt free “time-out”. You can use your time to run errands, have lunch with friends, or volunteer in an older child’s classroom all while your little one safely plays with us!
Our Mission: PlayCare is a safe, loving, and Christ centered learning environment. Our goal is to love the children and serve their families. We support the Christian values of caring, sharing, and loving. We believe strongly in strengthening the self-esteem of the child and his/her respect for fellow beings.
Our morning routine is a structured routine since predictability in routine tends to increase a child’s sense of security in a new situation.
We believe “children learn by doing”. Therefore we provide many opportunities for imaginative play, exploration, blocks, arts and crafts, and movement activities. We read stories, sing songs and enjoy snack time.
PlayCamp is an extension of PlayCare. The program is for ages 6 months up to rising 4th graders. PlayCamp is open on days that local schools are closed for holidays, weather, etc. or we are unable to meet the daily total for PlayCare.
Additionally, during weather related times, i.e. scattered power outages, and if our facility is safe, we will open our doors to PlayCare, PlayCamp families to get hot coffee, showers, wi-fi, etc.
Nicole is the Director of our PlayCare and PlayCamp Ministry. She opened PlayCare in 2009 and PlayCamp in 2018. Nicole (Coco) has a deep love and affection for children.
