Who are we?

A Child’s Journey exists to educate and provide excellent care for preschool children, according to our core values. Preschoolers will:

LEARN through play-inspired Christian curriculum,

EXPLORE in age-appropriate classrooms and outdoor playgrounds, and

GROW in our safe environment where differences are celebrated,

SOAR as we guide with grace and place value on each child’s individuality. 

Our Core Values

Love God

We believe that expressing our Love for God in intentional ways can shape a preschoolers life. Providing creative ways to educate children in a safe environment with a staff that is passionate about teaching is our primary goal.

Kingdom Focused

As a partner for your family, we believe that Life-Change happens best through relationships. As we work together to educate and provide care for children, our curriculum is Christ-centered to sow seeds that will last a lifetime.

Live Generously

It is more blessed to give than to receive. We will use our time, talents, gifts, finances and abilities to expand the Kingdom of God. Our program will partner with families and community to give generously.

Have Fun

Our classrooms will be a safe and fun place for our preschoolers to explore, discover and learn! Outdoor learning environments, music, and art will be daily activities. Letting our preschoolers lead the learning makes it more spontaneous and FUN!

Honor People

A child’s brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three—producing more than a million neural connections each second. Relationship, experiences and environment are factors in this development. Our goal is to provide child care where children don’t just learn, but grow a love for learning. As we celebrate our differences and uniqueness we can shape preschoolers' outlook and development in positive ways. 

Pursue Excellence

We will strive to always be our BEST. Through teaching, relationship, work, and service, we have the opportunity to change the world by just simply giving and being our best. By example, we HONOR God and INSPIRE others when we give our best in all areas of our life, work and ministry.

A Word From Our Director

Kathryn Smith

"I absolutely LOVE preschoolers! They are spontaneous and curious. They're the most real people you will ever meet. When they are excited, they show it; they don't hold back their emotions or worry what others may think. When they love you, they let you know. They're still innocent and full of wonder. Helping them navigate their raw emotions can be a challenge, but it's one of the most rewarding experiences you can imagine!"

Our J-Childcare Director, Kathryn Smith, is a wife and mother of four boys. She comes with over 20 years experience in Office Management and Church Administration, and 30+ years of teaching preschoolers.

Kathryn is also our J-Littles Ministry Director for our Sunday Experiences. Her love for the Lord and passion for preschoolers will be woven into our weekday program. She loves people and serving others. Her mission field is in each day and moment.
