Do not fear, for I am with you,
    do not be afraid, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.     –Isaiah 41:10
The purpose of Epiphany’s Morning Care Program and Child Care Center is to ensure a safe, nurturing, and healthy environment that enriches the lives of children and their families. Children have the opportunity to engage in age-appropriate developmental activities that stimulate growth and learning. We provide a strong foundation and smooth transition for the children to begin relationships with church, family and friends. 
Child Care is provided for all ministries at Epiphany so that parents may participate with the knowledge their children are being well-cared for on the premises. Additionally, we offer a superb Morning Care program, providing high quality, flexible day care for infants and toddlers Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Morning Care – Quality Child Care in a Nurturing, Christian Environment

We know parents want the best for their children

Epiphany’s Morning Care Program provides high quality, flexible day care in a safe, nurturing, and healthy environment for children ages two months to 6 years old.  This positive, caring, and Christ-centered atmosphere helps set the stage for children to flourish. We are honored to serve families and their children, precious gifts from God.

Why Epiphany?

Epiphany’s Morning Care Program offers high quality, affordable child care for children ages 2 months to 6 years old. We firmly believe parents must feel comfortable and confident when leaving their children in our care. To ensure delivery of high quality care, we are recognized for our:

Highly-qualified, responsive staff

committed to excellence and enhancing the care and confidence of children. Care from responsive, reliable and respectful caregivers provides the foundation for learning and building relationships.  Our trained and experienced staff members have passed stringent requirements and background checks and are certified in CPR/AED and first aid. They also have a heart for loving Jesus, serving others, and caring for His children.

Interaction, activities, and experiences

Our child care staff spends time interacting with and listening to the children, as well as providing support, curriculum, and experiences that stimulate development. A balance of structured activities (storytelling, singing, dancing, crafts, etc.), free play, and interaction between our caregivers and children promote sharing, independence, socialization, and learning new skills.
Nurturing and healthy environment that promotes cognitive development and relationships built on the foundation of Christian-values. The Morning Care Program also fosters early skills to help prepare and transition children for preschool (check out Epiphany’s Preschool Program) and beyond.

Safe, clean, and well-equipped facilities

that promote learning and educational development. The areas are arranged to support the needs of children to explore, create, move, or simply rest. We encourage you to schedule a visit of our newly renovated and equipped space located in the lower level of the Far Hills Campus.
