Children’s Day Out

Children’s Day Out is a non-profit ministry for children provided by Church of the Good Shepherd Church.  Our child care program strives to provide care in a Christian environment.  Our fall/spring program is open to ages six weeks to pre-kindergarten.  Our summer program is open to ages six weeks to twelve years.

Children matter so much to us at the Church of the Good Shepherd.  Jesus said to his disciples, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” (Luke 18:16)   As the most vulnerable of our church family, children merit the greatest care.  We strive to provide a fun, safe, loving, enriching, and nurturing Christian environment.

Children are encouraged to actively explore and interact with children, staff, and materials.  Opportunities to practice self-help skills are encouraged.  Outdoor and indoor play is provided to exercise large muscle groups.  Fine motor skills are developed through puzzles, pegboards, bead stringing, construction sets, and art materials.  Children develop language skills through bible stories, music, storytelling, poetry, finger plays and songs.  Exploration of blocks, science, math and dramatic play materials allows children to exercise their natural curiosity.

The program stimulates the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual areas of development.  The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of individual differences in ability and interest.  The teachers facilitate the development of self-control by using positive guidance techniques such as modeling, redirecting, setting clear limits and rewarding acceptable behavior.

Our staff is an important key providing the finest experience for your child.  We come with a willing heart and many gifts to provide a safe and caring place for your child to grow spiritually, physically, socially, and emotionally.  We strive to give as much individual attention as possible including smiles, listening ears, and loving hearts.  Most importantly, we hope to encourage your child to grow in their knowledge of God, commitment to Jesus, and love for their neighbors.  We hope that you and your child will sense God’s love flowing through all of us.
