​General Information
Flaming Sword Daycare - Early Learning Center is a private, non-profit Christian organization sponsored by Flaming Sword International Ministries, Inc.  The purpose of the daycare is to provide a safe, nurturing and loving Christian environment where each child’s growth is enriched.

We understand that your child comes to us with unique experiences, interests and learning styles.  Our goal is to truly know your child and use this knowledge to guide, support and motivate him or her.  We believe that great care and teaching requires continual professional development, personal reflection and collaboration.  We value parent involvement at every level and encourage you to partner with us to give your child the most caring, joyous and powerful experiences possible.

Our daycare/preschool is designed to meet the developmental and academic needs of each child.  We try to provide experiences that enrich, enhance and challenge each child.  Within the daycare/preschool’s daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, and learn personal interaction skills. 

We respect parents/guardians as the primary role models and providers of care and nurturing.  We believe that teachers and administrators are partners with parents/guardians in a child’s care and education.

Mission of the Daycare/Preschool
The mission of Flaming Sword Daycare & Early Learning Center is to provide quality early childhood care and education that will encourage and nurture the children, teach them how to respect others, and grow academically,spiritually, socially and emotionally in a positive way.

Inclusion Philosophy
We welcome children of all abilities, with the commitment to provide quality care and education to each child. We believe every child is a unique individual with varying needs, and we welcome the diversity that brings to us.  All children and families deserve to be full members of their communities, to have the opportunity for development and learning, and to experience a sense of belonging.

We support inclusion by providing access to our world-class curriculum programs, embracing inclusive participation in our programs, and offering support to our families and educators through training and consultation by our staff and outside consultants.

Because of Flaming Sword’s inclusion philosophy and programs, we welcome all children including those diagnosed with mild to moderate neurological learning challenges or developmental delays, including autism, PDD, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and many other challenges.

Inclusion is not just a strategy for helping certain children overcome challenges; inclusion is a way of life at Flaming Sword.

Non-Discrimination Policy
The daycare/preschool admits children of any race, color, national origin, or ethnicity to all of the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to the daycare/preschool.
