Epworth Daycare is a non-profit, interracial, interfaith center. We are committed to providing a healthy, happy and safe environment for each child in our center. Our program is organized so that it addresses the physical, mental, social and emotional needs of all the children. Each child is treated as a unique individual. Using positive words and actions in an atmosphere of love, we strive to ensure each child’s success.
Given the increasing number of families with children whose parent/parents work outside the home, and given the fact that a proliferation of pre-schools and daycare facilities of various degrees of excellence have sprung up to serve this need, and given that fact that there is still more demand for pre-school and daycare programs than are currently available:
The Epworth Pre-School, and Daycare with a Difference is in being as a part of the mission of Epworth United Methodist church to the community for the purpose of:
making available a high-quality, moderately priced program for three year olds through five year olds,
creating curriculum that deals with the intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of the age group, and that deals with the cultural backgrounds and heritage that are a part of the urban ethos,
making training opportunities available to those preparing for the pre-school and daycare field, and
operating within a model that could easily be replicated, thus improving the overall quality of daycare in this general area.
Epworth United Methodist Church sees this program as a way of caring for the needs of the community.
To achieve our goals, each teacher designs a curriculum based on the ages of the children in the class, developmental needs, and topics of interest to the children and teacher.
As Pre-school teachers, it is our goal to prepare the children for the school experience they will have after they leave our center. Among other things, the children will be taught the following rules:
Epworth Daycare complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,
Americans with Disability Act of 1990 and with the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. Epworth Daycare does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or disability in service or employment.
