 “As a ministry of Englewood United Methodist Church it is our mission to make God and His Kingdom more real through our care and education of children.  We offer our staff as the hands and feet of Christ, demonstrating unconditional love while helping to build every child’s self-esteem, character, confidence and knowledge.” 

What Makes Us Unique

The Reasons Just Keep Adding Up


Our staff is skilled, trained and loving - The greatest asset of any child-centered group is its people and we are proud of our exceptional team! We have taken special care to screen applicants, ensuring that they meet our high standards for teaching and caring for young children. In addition to being warm and compassionate, our staff is certified in CPR, First Aid and AED training. While the state requires only one person with such training, we think the health and safety of your child demands that everyone know these critical skills. 

Cleanliness is a priority - As part of our program's health standards, we clean and disinfect our toys and classrooms multiple times a day - in contrast to other centers that conform to the state standard of once daily. Infant and toddler classrooms are cleaned throughout the day and diaper changing areas are disinfected after each use. Toys are regularly replaced and rotated to ensure you child is provided with activities that are simulating. We adhere to strict hand washing, food preparation and restroom protocols to reduce the spread of germs center wide. 

We welcome parent involvement - Parents and extended family are an integral part of our Foundations family and we view the parent as the first teacher. You can feel free to drop by at any time as we have an open door policy. We also sponsor family-centered activities on our campus throughout the year, like parties, workshops and special performances.
