- Every child is a precious individual, worthy of unconditional love and respect.
- Children recognize their potential when they are offered opportunities for spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth in a safe and loving environment.
- Child care outside the home should support but cannot substitute for a fulfilling home life.
Full daycare is provided for children from infancy through five years of age in the Educational Wing of Grace United Methodist Church. Before and After School Care and a Summer Camp Program are designed for elementary school-age children. A large playground area is available for outdoor activities, and an All Purpose Room/Gymnasium for indoor fun and games. Volunteers, presentations, and field trips integrate our program with the community.
The Center is open year-round from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided. Transportation is provided to the Derry Schools and to the Nye and South Hanover Elementary Schools in Lower Dauphin School District.
