Children's Corner's philosophy: We acknowledge that each child is a child of God and every child has a right to grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically in a safe and nurturing environment. We seek to serve the community by meeting the needs of families. We strive to teach young children about the Bible and Christian love in a manner by which they may learn
