Loving, Growing, and Teaching Children

                                                                           Academically-Focused Learning

Southminster Child Care Center is a mission of the church, organized in 1981 to provide a loving, supportive, safe, and educational environment for the children in our care. Through positive interaction with the children and their families, and by working in a supportive and encouraging manner, we promote health, strength, and well-being to our families. 
At Southminster Childcare we nurture intellectual growth through a variety of visual and audio aids, educational toys, games, puzzles, and learning supplies. We believe a well-rounded education encourages an emerging sense of self and socialization alongside intellectual exploration.

Curriculum

Reading/Writing

Literacy is a vital part of a child’s success now and in the future as an adult, which is why we offer literacy learning at our  child care facility.

Math/Science

We introduce math and science in an interesting, inviting, and exciting way. Our programs offer children opportunities to explore, discover, and use their senses. 

Art

Art is a form of creative expression; It is important to us to have an art center in our classroom as it is a place where your little learners can to go express themselves creatively.

Critical Thinking

Learning to think critically may be one of the most important skills that today’s children will need for the future.

Infants

With a day full of warm and nurturing interactions, movement and playtime, our infants have every opportunity to grow and develop a sense of trust and confidence in a secure learning environment.
