Cool Spring Child Care Center has had the privilege of serving children and families in our community for over 30 years. Children are cared for in a warm and caring atmosphere where they receive safe, quality care and enjoy a positive learning experience. We endeavor to foster values that are essential to our Christian faith and encourage children to love and appreciate God, His creation, and His Son, Jesus, through love and understanding.

Children have many opportunities to learn and interact with one another through activities such as learning centers, circle times, indoor and outdoor play, Bible stories, games, music, and other special activities. Both large and small motor activities are provided to enhance physical growth. Children in our school age program also have the opportunity to do homework while at the center.

The best assurance for the success of your child’s experiences is the close cooperation and understanding between parents and staff. We encourage parent participation and encourage your ideas and suggestions.

Our curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate activities and practices in which children learn through hands on activities. Our goal is to provide children the tools they need as they grow and develop (whether it be moving from the Infant/Toddler room to the Preschool room or moving from Pre-Kindergarten to Kindergarten). We use a variety of resources to enable children to learn and grow as we help to prepare them to move to the next step.

As children transition into Pre-Kindergarten classrooms we focus on Kindergarten readiness skills. By communicating with local teachers, as well as frequently attending seminars and training, our teachers are equipped to provide the best possible experiences to prepare your child for the next stage in their social, educational, and spiritual development.
