We, myself and my husband Mark, started our daycare in our home in 2005. At the time it seem like the right thing to do and we felt the leading of the Lord. My husband would always say that his mother (Mrs. Bettye) took care of everyone’s children in the neighborhood so it just seemed natural. I babysat my siblings and we had eight children as well. We have four together and he has four from previous relationships. We as a family ran our daycare in our home for six years. We would always have full shifts and felt we needed more room. Our parents love our services and always encourage us to expand to help more parents. After much consideration we accepted the challenge to expand! In December 2011, my husband opened Bless The Children Daycare center. I assisted him until opening our second center, 10 Hour Care Daycare Center in August 2014. We opened a third location, 10 Hour Care Daycare Center Downtown in June 2016. We opened a fourth location recently in October 2019. We have cared for children in our centers, and in our children’s ministry as well. The Bible says “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6. We have brought those teachings to the children we come in contact with everyday. God has called us to impact and change the lives of children with love and care through our daycare centers. The Lord has blessed us and trusted us with the care of His children. We count it an honor and blessing and are truly grateful! .
Our mission is to help young children in the early stages of their development to learn the necessary lessons that will prepare them for school as well as life. We utilize evaluation to help see where each child is and develop a plan to help them progress forward and reach every milestone along the way. We monitor the progress of each child and also keep the parents informed of the child’s success and accomplishments.
The vision of 10 Hour Care Daycare Center is to provide excellent childcare services to the parents of the community; and to join quality with care and love combined with education, growth, and developmental tools to help each child succeed and to grow to become the person God has destined them to be! Lastly but not least we are here to introduce and help each child to know the love of Christ. The life that begins with Christ can endure the hardships of this world while continuing forward successfully.
A life without Christ is one that is lost no matter what the achievement. Our goal although education is important to help each child realize what is most important in their lives and that is Jesus Christ!
Our purpose is to provide quality childcare to each child and change their lives one by one with the help of Jesus Christ. Our principles are biblically based and it is our foundation of learning.We strive to affect every child in a positive way by providing a Godly environment and atmosphere that they can grow to love. We will provide encouragement and love along the way, while pushing your child forward towards excellence! Thank you for allowing your children GROW WITH US!
