Child Care Ministries

After School Care

Child Care Programs are integral ministries of Manoa Valley Church.MVC playground

As God seeks to provide for our needs, so we seek to do the same for each child in our midst. Our goal is to provide a loving environment where a child's physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual development are nurtured. We share the love of Christ through Christian caring, fellowship and worship.

In addition, Manoa Valley Church offers opportunities to the families of the children in our programs by providing parenting workshops, inviting families to various church functions and supporting families in crisis.


Our Pre-School is licensed for 40 children, ages three and four years old.
The Pre-School provides the foundation for the children to reach their potentials as contributing members of society. The school provides safe, healthy, nurturing and responsive environment where children grow to love God, others and themselves. We use child centered approaches to our educational program.

Educational Philosophy

We believe that a preschool should:

1. Provide a quality, well-rounded education that strives to meet needs - spiritual, physical, social, and emotional - of the whole child.
2. Furnish activities which are appropriate to the developmental levels and interests of the students.
3. Promote active, exploratory learning, offering the children numerous first-hand experiences.
4. Encourage the children to express themselves creatively.
5. Help the children become more independent, make choices and take responsibility for themselves.
6. Foster cooperation and concern for others.
7. Offer a balance of activities - fine motor and gross motor, indoor and outdoor, individual and group, active and quiet, teacher directed and child initiated.
8. Foster open communication between home and school.

Sharing the Christian Faith is an important part of all three programs. We are here to offer the good news of God's love in the context of a caring community -- the staff and the church. The children attend Chapel regularly with the Pastor and examples of Christian teachings and values are demonstrated by the staff.
