INFO & NEWS:
CHILD CARE & PRESCHOOL TO BEGIN NEW SCHOOL YEAR 2020/2021
Faith Preschool and Child Care is looking forward to a new school year! We will be offering preschool for children whose ages range from three to five years-old. We will also offer child care for school-aged children between kindergarten and fifth grade. Our preschool mornings will run from 9:00 AM to Noon. Our child care will be offered from 7:15 AM to 5:45 PM.
If child care is only needed for the mornings or afternoons, we will be able to accommodate those hours of need. Child care will begin on Monday, August 31st, and preschool will begin on Tuesday, September 8th.
We will be offering a "Home Away from Home" classroom. A Staff member will oversee the school schedule of the students and provide guidance as needed. The children will be socially distanced from each other at tables. We have the use of our gym and outdoor playground for breaks.
We will be following the health guidelines that have been established by the Delaware Department of Public Health. These guidelines include taking children's temperatures, keeping group sizes smaller and the wearing of masks by our Staff. Surfaces are wiped throughout the day, and Staff and children continue to wash hands regularly and use hand sanitizer.
We look forward to providing quality care to our families in a nurturing and caring environment. Should you have questions concerning our programs, please email us at , or call 302-764-8624.
The purpose of Faith Preschool and Child Care is to provide programs that educate and care for the children entrusted to us within a loving and nurturing environment. We believe that children are gifts from God and are created in His image -- creative, imaginative, emotional, intellectual and spiritual beings.
We focus on the individual needs of each child while providing a variety of experiences that will help develop the whole child. Emphasis on foundational Biblical values is an integral part of all our programs. We believe that we are entrusted to train the children in our care to reach their God-given potential with excellence by teaching them to be responsible, moral, caring and compassionate friends. Social, emotional and academic growth are vital components of our curriculum standards. Children are admitted without regard to gender, race, national origin, or religion.

The activities for school-age children involve Bible themes and lessons, thematic units, games and time to explore their environment with friends during our "Club - Time". Our "Club-Time" emphasizes character building and making the right choices. Our program integrates with Carrcroft Elementary and Mount Pleasant to transport the child from Faith and School. If your child does not attend Carrcroft or Mount Pleasant you are welcome to attend the program if you arrange your own transportation.
