Preschool and Childcare
Unity Christian Preschool & Day Care serves the community as a childcare facility and provides a latch key program for children before and after school. Our main objective is to provide a positive atmosphere that will promote the social, physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth of children. Learning experiences, appropriate for the developmental age of each group, are provided daily.
Our staff, as caregivers and teachers of young children, are required to have a minimum of fifteen training hours in child development per year.
Program 1 - Child Care
Child care from 6:00 am – 6:00 pm for children between the ages of 3-5 is offered. Children who attend for child care are included in preschool classes at no extra charge. Children enrolled in this program will have experiences in art, music, science, reading readiness, numbers, nature, cooking, large and small motor activities and outside play. These children will receive breakfast (if here by 7:30 am), lunch, and two snacks during their time at the center.
Program 2 - Preschool
Preschool is offered 8:30 am - 11:00 am for children ages 3-5. Children enrolled in this program will have experience in art, music, science, reading readiness, numbers, nature, cooking, large and small motor activities, and outside play. These children will receive one snack during their time at the center.
Program 3 - Before & After School Care
Before and After School care is offered for children ages 5-12 from 6:00 am – 6:00 pm . This program is also offered on days that there is no school. In the morning the school-aged children have free choice play until it is time to go to school, then a teacher walks them to FES. Unity Christian students will be bussed to and from school for before and after school care. The program includes breakfast (if here by 7:30 ) and an afternoon snack.
Program 4 - Drop-In Care
Drop-in care is available for all registered clients of UCPC. If an emergency comes up and your child needs care, you must call the center and if there is room you may bring your child on that day. This is called drop-in care for all unscheduled days.
