The preschool element of Chico Christian has been in existence for more than 20 years. We have loved and educated many children and ministered to many families. We have come to believe after a number of years of prayer and thoughtful consideration that God has a special plan in mind for us to partner with families of infants and toddlers who need all-day care.
The Infant Center begun in 2010 is a separate entity with a different license from the preschool. However, our purpose, we believe, is to be more than a daycare experience. We keenly desire to come alongside parents foundationally and providing them tools and mentoring as they begin the daunting task of raising their very special infants and toddlers.
It is with this partnership in mind that we have added a special piece to the Infant Center program. We ask that every parent of infants and toddlers who enroll in our program be willing to participate in a parent education program which we will provide. Every few months we will provide an evening education experience for parents. There will be a minimum number of experiences that parents in this program must attend each year. In September of each year we will be sharing the schedule of parent education classes for the October-June year. We find that the Infant Center partnering with our parents in learning gives our little ones a huge jumpstart on their growth and development.
