Central Child Care Center
Central Child Care Center is an outreach program of CUMC providing both full-time and part-time childcare for children ages 6 weeks old until they enter Kindergarten. It is designed to provide a safe, happy and healthy learning and growing environment for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Our primary goal is to help each child attain his/her greatest potential by providing a positive self-concept through educational, emotional and physical development. CCCC is accredited through Better Beginnings of Arkansas. We use the Adventures in Learning curriculum for toddlers and preschool age, and Creative Curriculum for infants through 18 months old. Children are given a wide variety of social and physical activities, while enhancing their emotional and spiritual growth. They participate in chapel time, library time, art, music, science, math, learning centers and imaginative play. We understand the importance of early childhood education and as we strive to connect with each child, they are given every learning opportunity that they will need to be prepared for Kindergarten.
Full-time care is provided Monday through Friday from 6:30am-5:30pm for all ages year-round. Part-time care is provided Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for infants through 2 year olds from 8:15am-2:15pm. For preschool age, part-time care is provided Monday through Friday also 8:15am-2:15pm, either ½ day (3 hours) or full day (6 hours). Based on your child’s age, you may choose any or all days available. The part-time program follows the traditional Rogers Public School calendar.
Central Child Care Center also provides Clubhouse Central during the summer months for school age children that have completed Kindergarten through age 12. Summer hours for this program are 7:00am – 5:30pm and provides safe, fun programming here in the church facility as well as transportation to area activities in our community.
All children, whether members of CUMC or not, are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Jennifer Singh, Director, or call 479-636-1224.
Tiny Tots Preschool
Tiny Tots Preschool is a 3-hour/multiple days a week program designed to help each child learn with more joy, more meaning, more purpose, and more satisfaction so that they might make a smoother transition into Kindergarten.

We hope to pave the way to successful learning, coupled with the sheer joy of discovering new and different concepts through reading, writing, oral language, listening, math, science, socialization, art, music and physical education. Tiny Tots is offered to three and four year olds and is based on the public school system entry birth dates. Four year olds attend for a half day on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Monday through Friday. Three year olds attend on Tuesday and Thursday or Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
