At St. Matthew's Day Care, our Statement of Purpose serves as a guide in understanding our attitudes and actions as the staff, directors, and steering committee of St. Matthew's Day Care.
St. Matthew's purpose is to provide a loving, caring, and safe christian environment for both the children and parents of our community. Every child is a special gift of God to us and will be treated as such. With the gift, God has given us the responsibility to nurture, help understand, and meet the needs of our children. We believe that children need such care because God has told us in His word to "suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of heaven." What better place to provide the type of care you want for your children than the Church of Jesus Christ?
We are dedicated to servce Christ by providing a day care program for the whole child.
No parent likes the idea of having somebody else care for their children. Unfortunately, financial and career concerns often make child care outside the home necessary. We recognize the tension this creates and will do all that we can to create a stable environment for growth for your child while at the same time reinforcing the value and necessity of parental love and care.
In addition, St. Matthew's Day Care exists to further purposes and benefit the people and work of St. Matthew's Reformed Episcopal Church, provide employment to members of the congregation and other deserving individuals, and where and as deemed appropriate by the Director and Steering Committee, to provide a means of christian charity and support of other worthy Christ honoring causes.
