Growing in Faith Daycare

high-quality care for children

Growing In Faith daycare provides STAR 4 quality childcare in a Christian environment, based on the belief that we are an extension of God’s family.


Our mission is to provide a supportive, nurturing environment that builds a sense of community among our families and staff, while also establishing a Christian foundation with our students, emphasizing values of God, family, and love.


Our daycare is an educational branch of Faith Church, and we are governed by an Advisory Board comprised of church members, staff, and parent representatives. We are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare and have been since 1995. Growing In Faith daycare also participates in the Pennsylvania Keystone STARS, starting in 2007 and maintaining the highest Keystones STARS certification since 2009.

Updates and precautions regarding COVID-19

Growing in Faith staff have been monitoring the pandemic situation--and how it affects our daycare kids, families, and staff--closely.  After the state government allowed Centre County to lift restrictions on childcare facilities, we decided to reopen as of June 15, 2020. Our temporary hours of operation are 8 AM -5 PM, Monday-Friday.


We are taking extra precautions to support the health and safety of your children, your family, and our staff. These precautions include some changes to our check-in/pick-up procedures, meal preparation and service, and class groups. We are also taking steps to ensure that we maintain a healthy environment for our kids and staff.


Please contact Amy Lukens, Director of Growing in Faith Daycare, to learn more about the ways we're addressing health and safety in our facility.
