Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve at-risk pre-school children (ages 3-5) and their families, by providing a Christ-centered, stable environment to learn and play safely.  By giving pre-schoolers better academic skills, social skills, and Christian grounding, they become better prepared to succeed in school and in society, and to avoid the hopelessness that leads to destructive behavior. In addition, we strive to empower parents and guardians to stimulate and safeguard early childhood development.
Truly, I say unto you, as you did it for one of the least of these my brethren you did it for me.
We have dedicated Christian teachers on staff who really care about the future of children.  They provide children with basic pre-school education, safe play methods, a listening ear, and a mentor to count on.  Theme verses for the ministry are:
James 1:27: "Look after orphans and widows in their distress..."
Matthew 19:14 "Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' "
Proverbs 22:6 "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it"
The joy expressed by these precious children while they are at the Center belies the challenging conditions they may face outside the Center.  Center graduates are better prepared for school than many of their peers, which leads to a path of success through school rather than one of discouragement, frustration and disillusionment.  Our graduates bring back many inspiring stories of success.  We invite you to visit the Center to experience the joy and blessing of helping.

The children are fed breakfast and lunch, which may be the only meals they eat that day. Ms. Rosa and the teachers daily assess other needs such as clothing and provide those as needed. Transportation to and from the Center is also provided.

The staff employ a variety of learning methods in a dynamic, loving environment. In addition to the basic academic skills appropriate for pre-school and pre-K programs, the children learn how to sit, listen and show respect for each other and their teachers.

Spiritual Development

Basic Life Skills

One of the greatest gifts the center can give the children is to learn how to get along with other children and to listen to and respect their teachers.
