Childcare Center

Who we are

We’re a Christian based center that has been in operation for over 30 years! We opened in the 1980’s and many of the staff members have been with the center for 15 years or more. Becky Dorris was the director from 1985 through September 2019 and Vicki Babner was the assistant director from 1992 – 2019. In 2019 we welcomed Allison Cowell as our new Director and Linda Linn as our Assistant Director, both of whom have a deep commitment to the children and families we serve in the community. Our staff love children and know the families and the community well. Their teaching method uses guided play activities, creative art, music, outdoor play, conversation, storytimes, dramatic play and group activities in a Christian atmosphere.
