About  Us


Welcome to Advent Christian Child Care Center serving children ages 2-12 years!

The Advent Christian Child Care Center is a ministry of the Mechanicsville Advent Christian Church. 

A five member Board of Directors, appointed by the Church Executive Board, governs the Center. 

Our purpose is to provide to our community a Christian environment in which children can grow spiritually, physically, socially, mentally and emotionally.

Our objectives as a Child Care Center are:
• To provide a Christian environment for your child’s growth in all areas of his/her development.

• To help the child develop Christian values and character.

• To help the child achieve readiness for public school.

• To provide the child with experiences in group activities and self-expression with those of his/her own age.

• To provide opportunities for church, school, and home to work together in meeting and developing the child’s needs.

Our philosophy reflects our understanding children need play and learning activities; and through developmentally appropriate practices they discover concepts of God, His creation, and His ways. 

We hope to assist each child in answering “Who am I?  Who are you?  What is the world like? And how do I relate to my world and the people in it?”

Daily activities will be developmentally appropriate for all age groups and provide opportunities for teacher-directed, self-directed and self-chosen tasks and activities.

An Administrator/Director is responsible for the day to day operations of the Center and partners with the Assistant Directors and the other Center teachers to ensure a safe environment, and a loving and secure atmosphere during the most formative years of a child’s life.

As a non-profit organization, our Center’s financial operation depends entirely upon the weekly income from tuition.

The Center is licensed by the State of Virginia and is periodically inspected by the Department of Social Services. 

We adhere to all state health and safety regulations and are also inspected by the Hanover Health and Fire Departments. 

Please refer to this website and the Parent Handbook if questions should arise concerning our policies and procedures. 

 If you have any questions that are not answered, please feel free to call our office. 

Thank you for the opportunity to minister to your family.
