Good News Childcare, our 11th Ministry


We are a state licensed quality Christian childcare providing a nurturing and loving environment as a program of The Haven of Rest Ministries. We serve families affiliated with the Haven as well as providing additional childcare openings for the public. We believe children learn best through play and interaction. Good News Childcare provides many opportunities for children to learn and discover the world they live in. We strive to create a faith-based environment that nurtures self-esteem, fosters independence, and encourages imagination and exploration skills.

Our staff is dedicated to providing children with a positive, upbeat, and loving childcare experience. Good News caregivers are committed to early childhood education. Our caregivers participate in professional development courses and attend annual training seminars so we remain up-to-date on current information regarding the development and teaching of young children.

The Haven’s Good News Childcare promotes daily learning and growing in God’s love. We embrace children’s individuality and encourage them to expand their horizons. We believe children thrive in a positive and nurturing environment and are committed to providing this care to all children in attendance. Good News Childcare appreciates diversity and respects the uniqueness of each family enrolled in our program.

Good News Childcare accepts children ages 2 weeks - 12 years old.
