About Us

Caring Friends Daycare Ministry began on Aug. 9, 1991 with a Christian program designed to serve all God’s children in an integrated setting starting at age 31 months to age 12 years old. Caring Friends Daycare Ministry is a non-profit 501c3 Christian daycare ministry. We are inspected by the state multiple times a year. We were the first ministry in the state of Indiana to earn VCP (Voluntary Certifications Program) Accreditation. We are also a Level 3 on Paths to Quality State Accreditation Program and are actively working towards Level 4, which is NAEYC Accreditation. Caring Friends is a member of NAEYC, IAEYC, EAEYC, 4C, and Chamber of Commerce. Caring Friends Daycare also is on CACFP Food Program and is trained in Serve It Safe training. We offer nutritious breakfast, lunch, and PM snack. Children also brush their teeth after lunch and before nap time. Nap time is from 1pm to 3pm.
