About the Provider

Description: RIPC operates a 5-star child care ministry Monday through Friday from 7:30AM to 5:30PM. Licensed to care for 12 infants and toddlers, our priority is to serve children of high school parents, foster parents, those with a history of domestic violence, and those with disabilities and developmental delays. For this ministry to exist, our tiny fellowship wrote a comprehensive amendment to the county zoning code, organizing lobbying for its passage well before the church was chartered. This ministry has been making a difference in the lives of the youngest at-risk children and their families since 1991.

I have and know many families that use this daycare,*which is more like a learning center,than a place to 'just watch children'. They are so interactive and hands on that I refer all my friends to this facility. I hear from friends whose children attend here,always the best"..On top of being a 5*star(highest you can get)facility,they truly show empathy,love and care to all the children in there care.I would recommend them above all others, if you want a babysitting service, it is not, if you want a place your children are safe,tended,loved and actually "taught" *Great for those going to prekindergarten or kindergarten.This is your daycare center.Call to find out all the extra programs to help you with cost,they are affordable & take subsidy as well.Other daycares, you will pay much more for the same comparable attention given here,but not so at Roanoke Island Presbyterian and rest assured your child is in a ?10star environment.Parents are always welcome to stop by,see what your child is doing, and what they have to offer.
