Celebration! Childcare Center


We Celebrate…

  • the fullest potential of each child.
  • the uniqueness of each child and family.
  • a nurturing, loving, safe and secure environment.
  • service to others.
  • a child’s social, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual development.
  • having experiences that increase the child’s awareness of the world.

Our Curriculum

Celebration! Childcare Center’s educational goals are to assist children to increase an awareness of reality as they experience it in themselves, in others and in the world around them. All programs are designed to create a positive experience within an age-appropriate creative curriculum. We plan this creative curriculum within nine specific domains: science, math, language, literacy, dramatic play, physical health and development, creative art, social and emotional development and approaches to learning. We use Arch books for the religious education component of our curriculum.

Our Mission

Our early childhood ministry celebrates God’s presence in our lives and demonstrates values taught in the Holy Scriptures. The staff does this by partnering with parents to develop each child’s God-given gifts socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
