About Us 

We have been caring for the children of York County for over 35 years through the licensure of the Pennsylvania Department of Welfare.  Our center offers child care for children beginning with 6 weeks of age, preschool, pre-kindergarten, full day kindergarten and before and after school care for kindergarten through 5th grade.  Our school age program complements the schedule of Roundtown, Hayshire and Sinking Springs Elementary Schools in the Central School District and Christian School of York.  Even though our present enrollment is more than 210 students, we work hard to give each one individual attention.  Our intimate classroom settings give the teachers a chance to meet each student on his or her level.  There are two playgrounds, a soccer field, and a softball field on our campus, along with 2 gymnasiums where our students get lots of exercise.
