All young children deserve to grow up in a safe, nurturing environment. Thus, the Shalom Daycare ministry interacts with parents, families, caregivers and community resources to provide educational programs that meet the development needs of preschool children. The daycare center is open to all children without regard to race, gender, economic status or religion. As a ministry of Roberts Park United Methodist Church, it is guided by the values of the church, yet remains open to the beliefs of others.

Support Our Classrooms

Shalom Daycare has been in operation for more than 20 years and has had the privilege of serving numerous children over the years. Our classroom materials and furniture are beginning to reflect all the love and learning and are in need of replacement. With the impact of COVID it is unlikely that we will be able to have our annual fundraiser which we rely on for extra funds for classroom improvements and training for our staff. Since COVID has restricted in person training and seminars our focus is now on updating the classrooms. Any contributions that are made are deeply appreciated and will be enjoyed by many children. Thank you for investing in our children.
