EXTENDED PROGRAM HOURS FOR THE 2020- 2021 SCHOOL YEAR!

You want your child to become his or her best and truest self.  She needs fun so she can be engaged in learning.  He needs support in some areas and challenges in others. As your child's primary caregiver, you need a little time to take care of yourself and get things done.  The purpose and mission of Covenant Children's Center is to care for and nurture children and families in our community.

Covenant Presbyterian Church has been home to an outstanding preschool for more than 50 years.  Children's Day Out, Kindergarten Enrichment, and the After School program were added more recently in order to provide support for more children and their families, finally launching a complete Covenant’s Children Center ready to meet a variety of needs.

The following information describes the programs for the 2020 - 2021 school year.  Many of the program hours have been changed for the 2020 - 2021 school year in order to better serve the needs of our community.

NEW HOURS: 9 AM – 12 NOON

Contact: Colleen Davis, 614-766-4871, colleendavis773@gmail.com

You want your child to become a little more independent and to build relationships with her peers.  You want him to have fun and to explore the world around him in lots of ways.  We created Children’s Day Out so that it is fun and wonderful for children, and so their caregivers can have a few hours to take care of themselves or do other things they need to get done.  For ten years, toddlers have been coming to Covenant to explore the world in a safe, nurturing and joyful community.

You want to enhance your child’s love of learning, and help her make new friends.  You want to give him the chance to explore our world in new ways, and practice social and academic skills. Our experienced teachers offer a rich variety of play-based learning activities together with opportunities to participate in large and small group guided learning. Our low ratio of a maximum of 12 children to 2 teachers allows for more individual teacher/student dialogue and interaction, lower stress, and a more personalized environment.

You want your kindergartener to have a morning full of enriched indoor and outdoor learning experiences. You want her to have fun, and be energized to do her best once she arrives at her elementary school after lunch.  You want him to practice kindergarten skills in meaningful ways, and have the opportunity to more deeply explore children’s literature, dramatic play and STEAM concepts. Our program offers interest-based learning opportunities guided by experienced teachers.         Transportation is available to afternoon kindergarten at Wickliffe, Windermere, and Tremont Elementary schools.
