Play & Learn Christian Child Care Center is a non-profit Christian child care center provided by Gethsemane Lutheran Church
committed to providing quality child care and early childhood education to infant, toddler, and preschool aged children.

Parent Involvement Opportunities

At Play & Learn, parents/guardians are always welcome to come and spend time with their children. We encourage parents/guardians to become involved in the various classroom activities and family functions offered at the Center. Be sure to check your child’s class monthly calendar and the Center’s Calendar of Events for upcoming special events. You may also complete a Parent Questionnaire indicating how you would like to be involved at Play & Learn.

Prior to the beginning of each school year, the Center will host an open house. This is designed to provide parents/guardians and children with the opportunity to meet classroom teachers, administrative staff, and other child care staff. At this time teachers can share information on classroom activities, policies, educational goals and objectives with the parents/guardians.

At various times throughout the year, Play & Learn will sponsor special events and activities for staff, parents/guardians, and children. These may include parties, Week of the Young Child Celebration, Christmas and spring programs, carnivals, and special programs for entertainment and educational purposes.

The individual classrooms will also have special activities, such as birthday parties, holiday parties, and field trips at which we encourage parents/guardians to volunteer and participate. Parents/Guardians should be sure to look for the posted sign-up sheets for these activities. Any parents/guardian who has a special interest or skill that they would like to share with the children may schedule a time to visit the classrooms. Special arrangements can also be made for you to join your child at a meal for a nominal fee.
