About the Provider


The Good News Ministries Child Care Center is open Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. We offer quality child care for children ages 6 weeks to upper elementary age. Our staff are all first aid/CPR trained and undergo annual training for child development learning. We provide morning and afternoon snacks and strive to help children develop mentally, physically, socially and spiritually while they are in our care. Our pre-school department offers quality training in numbers, letters, colors and shapes. Most are reading before leaving for kindergarten. We have a great playground on our property. We use puppets and music to teach Bible concepts and character-building traits.

As well as reaching out to children before school age, we offer a homework club where local children come for help with their homework, a snack and group playtime while waiting for their parents to arrive from work. This growing ministry also offers care for school-aged children when school is out for teacher workdays and during the summer months.
