Welcome to Christ United Methodist Church Child Care Center, a full-service center specializing in child care and educational programs. Feel free to browse our site. You'll find a variety of information on our programs that we hope will answer your questions or stimulate your interest.
The mission of Christ United Methodist Church Child Care Center is to be a safe and sacred shelter, to encourage and to provide opportunities for a child’s development and spiritual growth in a nurturing and loving Christian environment.
At the suggestion of Brian Bauknight, Christ Church Senior Minister, the Center opened in September 1981 by offering Drop In service three days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Reservations were made 24 hours in advance with the Director, who would call teachers to adequately staff the rooms. Three age groups were cared for: infant/toddler, 2‑3 year olds, and 4‑5 year olds.
By September 1982, the Center had grown to three components: Nursery School, Drop In and Day Care.
In 1986, our Day Care and Drop In programs were licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. The fourth component was initiated in September 1986 with our School Plus program for children from Kindergarten age through fourth grade.
Currently, there are two programs the center offers. Day Care, which includes a school age component, and Nursery School.
Please feel free to contact us to setup a time when you can come tour our facility and meet our staff. We look forward to meeting you and your children.
