Faith Child Care & Nursery School (FCCNS), in all aspects of its programs, seeks to strengthen and support the child and family. Whether a family seeks a limited nursery school experience or requires the support of full-time care, we provide many enriching learning experiences in an atmosphere of love and respect. Knowing that each child is a unique individual known best by parents, we encourage parent involvement and regular communication.
In order to ensure a quality experience, we provide a carefully planned program designed to meet the needs of the whole child – physical, social-emotional, language and communication, cognitive and spiritual. The basis for our program planning is the criteria developed by the National Association for Early Childhood Programs. The program considers the developmental level of the group as a whole and the individuals within the group.

“I feel very secure when I leave my children each morning – I’m able to go to work knowing they’re safe and receiving quality care and attention from caring and qualified teachers and individuals.”
"I think about my children during the day while they are at FCCNS, but I don't worry about them."
“To refer to everyone at FCCNS as ‘staff’ would seem inappropriate and impersonal. It is more a family-like environment with caring individuals taking a specific and genuine interest in the care and development of my child and trying to maximize their learning potential while at the same time instilling Christian-based values."
