Welcome to Bethel Christian Academy's Childcare Center!

In our center we understand that the first five years of a child's life are the most important,they help build a base for higher learning. Giving children many experiences combines with a Christ centered environment gives children a strong foundation in life. At Bethel Christian Academy we know that, so we strive to offer a well-rounded Christian environment with many different experiences. Inside and outside we fill children's days with ways to explore and learn through play. We offer love and understanding of what helps children learn and grow.

We have six classrooms in our childcare center. We enroll children 6 weeks up to 12 years. We accept subsidy as well as private pay. Below is an introduction to each of the classrooms.

Our rates are as follows:

Six Weeks-One year olds- $550 per month

One year old -Pre Kindergarten- $500 per month

Kindergarten- Twelve years- $440 per month (full time summer/breaks) and $140 per month for afterschool.

We charge a one time $50 registration fee for each child.

We also charge a one time $100 Book Fee/ Curriculum Fee for Pre Kindergarten students.

The Infant Room- The infant room has babies from 6 weeks to One year old. Each baby is given their own crib and is kept in the cleanest, safest, most Godly environment possible.  No shoes are allowed in this room because little hands touch those floors and we strive to keep the germs to a minimum. 
The Toddler Room- We offer Reading, Blocks, Books, Dramatic Play, Science, Gross Motor, Music and Movement, and Sensory Activities in the Toddler Room Daily. The Toddler Room  is a clean loving Christ centered environment full of fun and exploration. 
The Two year Old Room-  In the Two year old Room we offer Blocks, Books, Dramatic Play, Music and Movement, Science, Math, Art, Manipulatives, and Sensory Centers Daily for children to explore an play in. Potty training is offered and encouraged when the child is developmentally ready and the family is ready.

Our Three year old class has all of the Centers described above in the Two year old room daily. In addition, our Three year olds are offered Chapel, Library, and Reading Buddies weekly and cooking monthly. Three year olds are working on social and emotional skills as well as exploring their world and our Three year old environment gives them the opportunity  to develop those skills.
