Methodist Family Child Care Center
The primary goal of the UnityPoint Health - Methodist Family Child Care Center is to provide a warm, loving, and intellectually stimulating environment for the children.
"I came to the Methodist Child Care Center because I wanted to work for the best possible childcare and found it has a rock-solid foundation. The teachers here shine! They continue to amaze me every day with the quality of care they provide. They know how to teach the children in a developmentally appropriate way."
- Lee Ann Mowers, Family Child Care Center Director
Let's Grow Together!
When you see a group of happy children admired and respected by the grown-ups they spend time with every day, you know you've found a flourishing beginning for lives both young and precious.
Quality Early Childhood Care
The Methodist Family Child Care Center (MFCCC) offers full-day quality early care and education for children 6 weeks old through kindergarten:
- Infant Care & Toddler Development
- Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Education
- Kindergarten Education
We are proud to share that we earned the Silver Circle of Quality recognition through ExceleRate Illinois who validated that we go beyond basic quality standards in three areas: learning environment and teaching quality; administrative standards; and training & education. We are also actively involved in continuous quality improvement.
MFCCC is licensed through the Department of Child and Family Services. We can accommodate up to 160 children at any given time. Although our primary focus is UnityPoint employees, the community is welcome to use the facility as well.
The teachers and staff are experienced, caring, and qualified. They enjoy working here, which shows through their loyalty and attitude. We believe parents are looking for a Child Care Center where teachers and staff:
- Pay attention to their child.
- Treat their child as a special individual.
- Respond to their child naturally with warmth, enthusiasm and nurturing guidance.
Where are we located?
Just across I-74 from the hospital inside Methodist College on the northeast side of the building.
