Children's Center

The purpose and mission of Covenant Children's Center is to care for and nurture children and families in our community. We offer programs for children ages 18 months through 5th grade. Here at Covenant, the teachers are experienced and loving. Our learning environment is flexible, and our classes are designed to support each child’s physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive growth. In addition to our welcoming classrooms, we have many other physical learning spaces including a large multipurpose room for indoor gross motor play, a fenced playground with a variety of play structures and open spaces, a community garden, a paved labyrinth, and a quiet sheltered courtyard.

Here at Covenant, we also have significantly smaller group sizes and smaller child to teacher ratios than other programs. This enables us to provide more responsive individualized care and have more frequent one-on-one interactions between children and teachers.
