We are a licensed child care center
that provides care and education to
children ranging in age from 6 weeks
to 12 years. We offer full-time care
to children 6 weeks to 6 years of age,
with a before and after school
program and summer camp for
school age children. Our hours of
operation are Monday-Friday
6:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
St. Benedict Center for Early Childhood Education offers a variety of facilities guaranteed to keep your child entertained, stimulated, productive, and safe all day!
Inside, St. Benedict has 10 classrooms. Each classroom features dramatic play sets, cubbies to store your child’s belongings, an area for eating, books to read, and lots of toys for the kids to learn and grow with! St. Benedict Center has a computer lab for school age children to play educational games and to do online homework after school. The Center also has a kitchen for hot lunch and snack to be served.
Outside, St. Benedict offers three playgrounds so that every child can play! One playground is designed for toddlers, one for pre-k children, and the last for school age children. There is also a parking lot available, so you won’t have to cross the street to drop your child off.
We offer many special features that go above and beyond
what is required by state licensing. We have lower
child-to-teacher ratios and smaller class sizes. This
allows our teachers to provide more individualized care,
a higher-quality education, and better meet each child's specific needs. We recognize that each child learns and progresses at his/her own speed, and we incorporate that into our daily curriculum. Our teachers are required to have a minimum of a high school education, at least one year of experience in the field of Early Childhood Education, and are required to attend professional development programs throughout the year.
The children at St. Benedict center are provided with breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. We are part of the Federal Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)*, which requires high-quality and nutritional foods to be provided to the children. We offer a wide variety of healthy food choices and introduce children to new foods.
