High Quality Early Learning & Child Care

Day Care Program

Overview

The Day Care Program operates from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, year round. This program caters to working parents who need full time child care for children ages six weeks to 5 years old and who are in need of before and after school care for children in kindergarten through 4th grade. Day Care is licensed through the PA Department of Human Services and is a Keystone STAR Level 2 facility.

Classrooms

Day Care is comprised of seven classrooms:

  • Infants: 6 weeks to 12 months
  • Walkers: 1 year to 2 years
  • Toddlers: 2 years to 3 years
  • Readiness 1: 3 years to 4 years
  • Readiness 2: 4 years old
  • Pre-K: 5 years old
  • School Plus: Kindergarten through 4th grade*

*Bethel Park School District buses pick up and drop off at the center for Memorial Elementary School. We provide van transportation to and from Upper Saint Clair School District for Streams and Eisenhower.

Learning

The lead teacher for each classroom creates a weekly lesson plan tailored to the unique and individual needs of each child in the classroom. Copies of the lesson plans are sent home to the parents. We use Creative Curriculum and all lesson plans are aligned with the PA Early Childhood Learning Standards.

Play

Children engage in free play in the classrooms with learning manipulatives throughout the day. They are also provided with opportunities for gross motor development. We offer two outdoor play areas, a full size gym, and an indoor play space. Day Care also partners with Mighty Kicks to provide soccer lessons during the spring, summer, and fall for children ages 3 years old and up.
