If you're looking for
experience, we've got it! The Guardian Angel Day Care began caring for
children back in 1986. We were elevated to a state certified day
care in 1991. In fact, for 23 years we were the only state
certified day care in Carroll County. All this started because the
folks at the Carrollton
United Methodist Church saw a need among young families for quality day
care. That commitment to provide a safe, clean, and caring environment
where parents can confidently leave their children continues to be a driving
force for our day care even today. For certification purposes the state
identifies us as The United Methodist Church of Carrollton, MO Day Care.
But since the very begining we have been known locally as The Guardian
Angel Day Care.
do we provide a weekday program for children and their families?
child is a child of God and should have every opportunity to develop
physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually to their
fullest potential. The church is called to the ministry, caring for
children, showing concern for families and providing support for its own
congregation and for the surrounding community.
child care program housed in a church is expected to reflect the highest values
and the best of care. In the United Methodist Church, we have the
opportunity to offer the finest in early childhood education and to direct
attention to the Christian faith through education. We recognize the
importance of adults as role models of acceptable behavior for children.
When adults use attitudes of thankfulness, sharing, patience, love, joy,
fairness, and obedience, children begin to pattern their own ways of acting
after them. We encourage health and safety, building respect, getting
along with others, individuality, and creativity. Communication between
the home and the day care is a very important aspect for creating an effective
and positive program.
