Q: WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES?
A: See Tuition Page for our current pricing options (NOTE: there is no part-time option for infant and toddler care)
Q: WHAT IS YOUR CURRICULUM?
A: We use Zoo-phonics to teach literacy. Zoo-phonics is a unique program that involves the whole child; eyes, ears, mouth, mind and body. It uses Endearing animals (visual learning), Hand and body motions (kinesthetic learning), Sounds and songs (auditory learning), Letter shapes (visual learning), as well as Games and activities.
Our qualified teachers also create a tailored curriculum for their classroom that includes art, math, science, gross and fine motor skills, social skills, and Christian learning.
Q: WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN CHILDCARE?
A: Mount Olympus Christian Child Development Center features a non-denominational approach to child care that includes Bible stories, Christian songs, and prayer at meal times. We value the love of Christ, teach the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you) and never use shame as any part of our approach toward child care or spirituality.

A: The current waiting list time for two and younger is over a year, and three to six months for ages three to school age.
