The Vineyard Early Childhood Center provides full-time childcare and preschool for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. We also provide a part-time, 1/2-day preschool program (September through May only) for ages 3 to 5. Children must be potty-trained for the part time preschool program.

Commonly Asked Questions

Where can I pick up an application?

Applications are available from a receptionist in our church ministry center between the hours of 8:30am and 5pm, and at the Community Center front desk after 10am.


What do I need to do in order to reserve a space for the 2018-2019 part time preschool?

Please visit the VCC Reception desk to complete a registration form and submit a non-refundable registration fee of $35.00. Payment may be made by cash, check or money order and is due upon registration.
Fall registration for Part Time Preschool for the 2018-19 school year begins March 19, 2018.

How do I schedule a tour of the center?

You can contact Christine Stover to schedule a tour. Tours typically take place during the morning between 9:30 and 11:00 am.


Do you accept part time enrollment in your full time, year round program?

No, we only accept children who need care all day, Monday through Friday.


Do you accept Title XX?

Yes, but you must be approved for full time hours and can verify that you currently receive benefits in order to enroll your child.


Do you have a waiting list for your center, and if so, how do I get onto the waiting list?

Yes, we do have a waiting list for some of our classrooms, but it is always a good rule to call and check on the wait list status. To put your child on the wait list, we will need a completed application along with a $35 registration fee to hold a space.


Is there a difference in your part time preschool and full time program offered for 3-5 year olds?

No, our full time program also offers the preschool component. We offer our full time program for working families who need the care all day for their child.


What type of curriculum do you use?

We use The Creative Curriculum, which is a play-based curriculum. We foster the concept in that children learn through play and exploration. The teachers create age-appropriate lesson plans that incorporate the developmental and academic needs of the children. In addition, the teachers individualize their lesson plans to meet the children's needs and align their plans with Ohio's Early Learning and Developmental Standards.
