Fun-damentals Learning Center is a state-licensed facility providing child care for children six-weeks old through elementary school. Our hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Our teachers are experienced in child care and early childhood education. Fun-damentals has many long-term teachers who are certified in first aid, communicable disease protocol, and the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Each year our teachers attend continuing-education workshops to stay current with child care instruction and issues.

Children are divided by age groups and by individual developmental levels into seven supervised classes, according to state day care licensing standards. The classes will not exceed the ratios listed on this page and most are lower. We exceed or meet ODJFS requirements.

Our Educational Program
Our preschool education program is designed for the development of: social skills, fine and gross motor coordination, language acquisition, math and science readiness, visual and auditory discrimination, time-use, and self-help skills.

During the summer, our program for kindergarten and school-aged children is oriented towards projects such as: swimming, plays, art projects, field trips and community activities.
