Welcome to the Basics of Life!   

Basics of Life Christian Child Care is a day care and pre-school for children of all ages whose parents seek opportunities for them to learn and grow.  Our goal is to help every child to be happy and secure and to develop his or her true potential. To meet this goal we offer families a safe, nurturing, educational childcare opportunity that reflects their values and concerns.

Using music, art, dance and other hands on types of learning, children are able to learn about themselves and others their age. They will learn in a comfortable classroom setting where they will have a consistent flow of events on a daily basis.
