Our Vision

To minister Christ’s love to the children and families of Owego, New York, and the surrounding areas by providing a safe and loving environment where working parents may leave their children.

Our Philosophy

We believe that all children are gifts from God. We recognize that the parents are the first and best teachers of a child. We believe that the parents are entrusting to our care their most prized blessings.

We promise to tenderly guard and protect the children in our care.

We believe that God has given all children the ability to learn. We recognize that children should be nurtured in the areas of physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development.

We promise to provide experiences that encourage all areas of the child’s development.

We believe that God has given all children areas of special blessings. We recognize that each child is unique in his or her giftings and abilities.

We promise to search out and encourage each child’s strengths.

We believe that God loves all His children. We recognize that all children need to feel love and acceptance, encouragement, and success.

We promise to interact with your children with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
