Respite Care



We know that raising children isn't easy.  We understand the stresses involved and are here to help.  If you have day care needs--whether you have a medical appointment, job interview, or just need a personal time out, our Respite Care Center may be what you are looking for. We have added two additional services under our Respite care :  Parents Evening Out is a 2-hour session two evenings/month from 5:30-7:30 for parents to arrange a Date Night for themselves, and Kindergarten Prep is a Thursday afternoon class that we established to help prepare some children for trnsition into Kindergarten.


Our Respite Care Center provides quality, nurturing childcare at NO COST to parents/caregivers in need.  This service most often is used by adults who have little or no childcare resources and are looking for employment, attending classes, or simply need a break due to unforeseen stress and/or crisis.


Respite Care has limited openings and hours of service and spaces go quicky.  Please contact the Respite Coordinator, Sheila, to inquire about availability.
