Nurturing Faith, Inspiring Learning
Our highly motivated and trained teachers believe that young children learn best by doing. Our goal is to prepare them for the next level of learning, whatever age they are at, and ultimately, get them ready for Kindergarten! Through play and activities, children learn how to resolve conflict, be independent, develop confidence and enjoy exploring their environment. Students develop small and large motor skills through active play, investigation and hands-on experiments.
In early childhood, much of the children’s education comes through social/emotional development. Through play, children learn how to build healthy friendships, identify and control their emotions, ask questions and solve problems. They learn how to be compassionate towards others and how to walk in love. Our staff are all born again Christians who model the love of Jesus to the children. Our Bible-based curriculum introduces the children to God’s Word through stories, praise and worship, theater, art, crafts, puppets and more!
We believe for every child who enrolls in Harvest Christian Daycare to become rooted and grounded in the love of God. We partner with your family as a team to create an atmosphere of love and trust as we nurture and support your child growing into the person God created them to be!
A Little About Us
When looking for a place that you can trust with your precious child, you want a place that feels like home. Even though no one can provide the same love and care that you do, you want the absolute closest you can get, and that’s what we strive to provide at Harvest Christian Daycare.
Our team of loving, skilled and knowledgeable teachers become much more than staff–they become like family! HCD care providers are experts at listening to your priorities and preferences and doing their best to provide accommodations that give you peace while you’re away from your little one.

He sat down, watched me leave and didn’t cry.

In the past year that our son has been at HCD we have not only seen a vast improvement in his intellectual abilities but also with his social skills, his behavior and his faith in God.
