Gun Lake Child Care
...Growing Kids in Christ
We are a ministry of Gun Lake Community Church. We exist to provide a safe Christian evnironment for children of the community. Our goal is to support parents in their roles at home and to equip children with a solid biblical foundation.
We are pleased to offer a Child Care Center for children ages 6 weeks to 10 years.
We are a licensed, year-round Christian Child Care facility located within Gun Lake Community Church. We offer a safe and interactive place for your child to have their sense of personal value to God reinforced.
Easily accessible from our east parking lot located by the playground. We offer an Infant class for ages 6 weeks to 12 months, a Wobbler class for ages 12-24 months and a Toddler class for ages 24 months to 3 years. Our Young Preschool Room is where our 3 - 5 years old are located. Summer programming available for ages 6 - 10 if younger siblings are enrolled in our Child Care.
Every Child Care staff member has been carefully screened and selected for their love of children and God as well as their ability to guide and model positive behavior and interact enthusiastically with children on a daily basis. We implement a developmentally age-appropriate curriculum for 6 weeks - 10 year olds. We communicate with parents daily and a daily note is sent home telling about your child's day in the Infant and Toddler Rooms.
We follow the state requirements for staff to student ratios. They are 1:4 for children ages 6 weeks - 2 1/2 years, 1:10 for ages 3 - 5 and 1:12 for ages 5-10.
What to bring on your first day
Diaper bags, clothing and other personal items MUST BE LABELED with the child's name. Please include the following:
We provide a nutritious snack two times a day. Each will include at least two food groups as required by the State Food Regulations. Breakfast snack, such as toast and orange juice or yogurt and juice is served at 9:30 a.m. and afternoon snack, such as milk and banana or crackers and cheese, is served at 3:30 p.m.
Lunch is provided by the parent. Refrigerators are available in the room to keep lunches cold and microwaves are available to heat food.
A typical day consists of play time, snack time, outdoor play, story and singing (circle time), craft time, lunch, nap time, snack time, free time and then home. (Infants will follow their individual schedules).
