Eagle’s Nest Children’s Center
We strive to provide a nurturing environment where children ages 6 weeks through 4 years can receive developmentally appropriate care during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We are open Monday through Friday all year long.
The center is a non-profit ministry of The Methodist Home for Children and Youth, a connectional, faith-based ministry of the United Methodist Church. Accreditations include: Quality Rated, Council on Accreditation (COA) and Eagle.
PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL
The goals of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) are to engage parents and caregivers, strengthen our families and build community amongst the families.
To meet these goals, the PAC:
- Meets quarterly
- Plans family engagement activities such as Fall Festival, Grandparents Brunch, and much more
- Supports activities to promote literacy within Eagle’s Nest such as special guests and Dr. Seuss’ birthday
- Acts as a representative of all parents and a sounding board to the Director for any new ideas or existing challenges
Each month, the Eagle’s Nest Newsletter is published for parents and families. It includes information about upcoming events, birthdays, nutrition and wellness tips, as well as information on what the children are learning in the classrooms. Check out a sample newsletter here!
We offer video observation for parents to observe our classrooms during the day.
