Agape programs provide the necessary education, developmental activities, and opportunities for each child to reach their full potential physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
We accept and value the uniqueness of every child.
Sees each child as a unique individual with abilities which are different from other children
At any given time, each child is developing physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially and creatively. All of these are related to and dependent upon one another and are of equal importance in the child’s development
The dignity and worth of each child is respected and enhanced
A child whose needs have been adequately met is more likely to develop into a healthy, responsible and secure person
All adults in a child’s world should provide opportunities for children to develop abilities to their fullest potential
A child has a natural curiosity that, in an appropriate environment, results in an eagerness to learn. Providing opportunities that stimulate this curiosity enhances their development

What Our Families are Saying
Agape has wonderful teachers who do everything they can to help your children strive. I couldn’t recommend this daycare more! My kids love it there ❤️
My kids love the teachers and all the different activities they get to do.
This daycare is wonderful. Our toddler is learning so much. The teachers are very caring and extremely patient. I love that there is a designed curriculum for even the youngest children.
We’ve been with Agape for 6 years now and I feel like they are our extended family. These are people that truly care.
The teachers teach our child with comfort, compassion, and respect. My child loves the variety. It’s not the same thing every day.
Real good food. Great Teachers
Agape is fantastic! We love it there.
