Child Care Services

The Ministry of Caring operates three child care centers, each of which responds to an acute need for affordable child care for offspring of the homeless and working poor. These include residents of Ministry emergency homeless shelters and additional residents of inner city neighborhoods. In these bright, lively places of learning and play, youngsters benefit from a quality education, nutritious meals, snacks and a stable environment, all crucial factors in the growth of body, mind and spirit. All three child care centers are Five Star facilities through Delaware Stars for Early Success and accept Purchase of Care. Fully-certified professionals trained in early childhood education staff each state-of-the-art center. Dedicated caregivers, including Foster Grandparents, staff from Wilmington Senior Center and an army of volunteers, assist them. Each facility is designed and equipped exclusively for children of a specific age group. Operating hours meet the needs of working parents.
