Daycare Program

South Haven Christian Daycare and Preschool is a Christian facility.  Therefore, we are interested in the spiritual development of your child, as well as the physical, emotional, social and intellectual.  

In our infant classes we offer your child love and affection while trying to mimic what you are doing at home by following the same schedule and taking an interest in finding out your child’s likes and dislikes. We are also happy to help in the many milestones and changes that occur in your child’s first year of life.

> One Year Olds
   Our one year old class is divided into two groups. We have a young one year old class                      (approx.12-18 months) and an older one year old class (approx. 18-24 months) in order to be able to do more age appropriate activities. In the ones, your child will sing, be read to, color, finger paint, learn through play, have sensory activities, act out alphabet flash cards to encourage speech and a growing vocabulary, go for a stroll in our 6 passenger stroller, visit our indoor playroom, outside time weather permitting and more.
