Kids First child care is an outreach ministry of the First United Methodist church, serving families in the local community. Designed for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age, our caregivers are experienced and trained to care for children’s needs. Care for children is provided in a safe and stimulating learning environment.
Kids First is governed by the childcare board of directors along with the trustees of First Church and registered with the state of Indiana. This means we comply with all state regulations for child care ministries.
Kids First is a non-profit organization Thus, all monies received go toward the operational expenses of the program, and any excess monies received will be used to maintain the playground as well as purchase items needed.
We believe parents are the most significant adults in their child’s life. We do everything possible to insure parents’ involvement with our program. With our open door policy, parents and family are welcome and encouraged to visit at any time.
We believe and desire for all parents to have a daily contact with the director or assistant director This will assist parents and staff to understand how to meet each child’s needs.
We believe a child’s work is their play. Children play to learn, to grow, and to experience the world around them. Children grow from the head down and the trunk out, they must move! Kids First, a child centered day care, moves at a child’s pace with uninterrupted free time. Weather permitting, their play takes them outside into God’s world.
