Connecting People to God, One Another, and the World!
Our daycare is open from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday thru Friday. Children are divided into classrooms by their age. We currently have 7 daycare classrooms serving children ages 6 weeks through 5 years. Tuition is charged on a full-time, part-time, daily, or hourly rate depending on the child's schedule and age. All of our daycare classrooms have a full-time lead teacher with an Associate's Degree or higher, and many also have an assistant teacher. Each lead teacher creates weekly lesson plans based on the Wisconsin Model Early Learning standards that feature Christian-based literacy, mathematics, science, art, music, sensory, gross motor, and social learning activities.
Children must be 3 by September 1 of the current school year to participate in our 3-year-old preschool program. This program follows the School District of Janesville's school year calendar and operates Monday-Wednesday-Friday from 8:45 to 11:15 AM. This program features a slightly more structured, academic play-based learning environment than our daycare program. Tuition is billed on a monthly basis.
Children must be 4 by September 1 of the current school year in order to participate in P4J. P4J, or Preschool 4 Janesville, is a collaboration between the School Disctrict of Janesville and area preschools. Also known as "4-year-old Kindergarten", P4J is a free program available to any child living in the school district. We currently have two P4J classrooms with sessions running Monday thru Friday from 8:15 to 11:15 AM or 12:00 to 3:00 PM. P4J teachers are state-licensed and certified teachers with at least a Bachelor's Degree.
Our school-age program operates daily both before and after school and on non-school days and school breaks. We also offer transportation to and from local elementary schools daily. Children in Kindergarten through age 12 are eligible to participate in our school-age program. During the summer, our school-age program goes on weekly field trips to local parks, pools, and attractions.
