As parents, it is natural for you to want your little ones to spend time in a safe, healthy, and stimulating environment with a daycare staff that cares. That is exactly what we offer at First Christian Church of Hannibal. We provide opportunities for children to experience spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and emotional growth.
Our daycare is licensed by the Missouri Department of Health, Bureau of Child Care Safety, and Licensure. We are also part of the Federal Food Program that requires us to provide well-balanced meals. For your added peace of mind, all our staff members are required to meet state licensing guidelines for professional growth on an annual basis.
A Christ-centered atmosphere—this is what our daycare offers. We believe that every child is special, and we strive to open avenues for your children to achieve the fullest potential given by God.
Our well-balanced program is filled with activities that require group work and individualized attention. Daily activities include breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack as well as supervised rest time, prayer, sharing time, educational activities, outdoor play (weather permitting), music, art, crafts, and gym playtime. In order to keep these activities age-appropriate, children are divided according to chronological age.
We also have a biblical-based pre-K program that started in 2002: “Reading Readiness with Ace & Christi.” This is part of the “School of Tomorrow” program that covers science, social studies, math, scripture memory, English, vocabulary building, and character building.
Our summer program gives children the chance to explore the City of Hannibal and the surrounding areas through weekly swims at the Community Pool, gymnastics visits at Barbara Stewart's Gym, and readings at the Hannibal Free Public Library.
