WORD OF FAITH CHILDCARE CENTER

OUR MISSION
Word of Faith Infant and Childcare Center was established in 1986 because we believe that infancy through age three, are vital to the growth and development of a child.

We understand that the home is the ideal place for a child to learn and grow however; this is not possible for all of our children. We, therefore, wish to serve as an extension of the home by nurturing, training, and instructing your child in a loving, safe, Christian environment.

Thank you for considering our Child Care Center. Our program provides quality care in a Christian environment. We also set precedence for learning. It will be our pleasure to work with you and your child (ren). By enrolling your child (ren), we know that their experiences will be wholesome. It is our endeavor to provide the loving care and guidance needed during their formative years.
