Children enrolled in Epworth Preschool & Daycare's full day program receive preschool education every day Monday through Friday. We have patterned our full day program after our preschool program and extended the day to include breakfast, lunch and naptime. We understand that children need lots of opportunity for physical activity every day so we have outdoor time twice a day on our playground -- weather permitting. When the weather doesn't cooperate, we have an indoor gym or activities especially designed to help children increase their gross motor skills. Daycare students also attend Specials classes, which include:

Music & Motion – This class is an opportunity for children to learn early music concepts, improve listening skills, and participate in movement activities.
Discovery – Nature-based class which teaches children the importance of taking care of our earth and showing all of the benefits of doing so.
Gym – Students learn sportsmanship, taking turns, and new ways to play!

Our children also receive delicious and nutritious meals and snacks. The noon meal is hot and home cooked. Our snacks focus on encouraging our children to eat more fresh fruits, vegetables and grains. Be sure to check our monthly menu with the link at left.

We are a full-time only Center. This means that no matter a child’s attendance, full payment is required each week in order to hold your child’s spot in our program. Families receive 10 vacation days per school year which may be used at any time if advance notice is provided to the Center. A one-time, non-refundable, registration fee of $35 is due at enrollment to reserve a spot in the program for your child. By Sept. 1st each year, a materials fee of $75 is due in order to keep our classrooms stocked with supplies that students use every day. Each year we also assess a Summer Fee based on the costs of our Summer Program. The Summer Fee for 2018 is $55 per student, due June 1st.
