Since 1976, we have been offering full-day childcare through our state-licensed Child Care for children eight weeks to pre-kindergarten (Monday – Friday, 6:30 AM – 5:30 PM), year-round. We also offer half-day care through our Mother’s Morning Out ministry during the school year for toddlers, two year olds, three year olds and pre-kindergarteners on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (9:00 AM – 1:00 PM).

Child Care (6:30 AM - 5:30 PM)

Penny Corn, Weekday Ministries Director

Children enjoy the day with our team of classroom teachers following age-appropriate lesson plans including indoor/outdoor play, breakfast, hot lunch, afternoon snack and children/teacher directed center activities.  Faith-building along with Kindergarten preparation lead the focus of our curriculum.

As a state licensed day care we are inspected annually by the NC Divisions of Child Development and Early Education, the Cleveland County Health Department, the Fire Marshal and the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
