Our state licensed day care serves children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. We best serve these children by separating them by age into different classrooms.
We practice continuity of care in our infant/toddler classrooms. Research has shown that consistency in care is important to the appropriate growth and development of children, especially for infants and toddlers. We believe that infants attach to their teacher and it is in the child's best interest to remain with that teacher. Because of this,we have the Rainbow Wing of our building, where infants and toddler classrooms are located. Your infant will be with the same group of teachers until age 3.

At Agape', we take the safety of your children very seriously. We are committed to maintaining a safe environment and go beyond what is required of us by the state. We maintain CPR certification for all of our teachers as well as office and kitchen staff. Our entire staff is also certified in first aid and universal precautions. Our teacher's take annual TB tests as well as undergo fingerprinting and a criminal history check upon hire as well as every 3 years thereafter. We also maintain low student to teacher ratios which we believe is essential to the safety of each child. Research has shown that group size and child/staff ratios are among the most important determinants of child safety and quality of care. We understand the trust you, as parents, place in us to take care of your children and our continued training in health and safety is one way we can reassure you that your children are in capable hands while you are away.
Our teaching staff at Agape' is superb. We are committed to ongoing education for our entire teaching staff. All of our daycare teachers are required to complete 12 hours of formal continued training on topics directly related to the education of early childhood students. Many of our staff hold or are currently pursuing a degree in early childhood education. All of our teachers are passionate about the education of your young children.
As a Christian non-profit ministry, our goal is not to make money but to provide a service to our community. We believe that providing a solid Christian foundation is essential to the upbringing of well rounded, Christian children. Agape' offers a refreshing, biblical alternative to secular day care and preschool/kindergarten. Not only is the Bible taught for what it is - the inspired Word of God - but it forms the foundation of all other texts. In math, in science, in reading, all academic roads lead to God, in whom all knowledge has its origin.
Involving families in our program is a top priority at Agape Learning Center. We believe this helps build a partnership and lets children make the connection between home and our center. Agape' serves as an extension of your family and sharing ideas and genuine love for children is a top priority. We encourage parents to visit and participate in school activities. Our open door policy allows parents to come and visit unannounced, as long as your child is currently enrolled in the program. We value communication between parents and teacher so that we may provide the best individualized care for each child.
