Full Time Licensed Child Care Program
In today’s trying economic times, child care expenses can consume so much of a family’s budget that sometimes it seems parents are putting in the hours at work just to pay for day care. The mission of New Hope Learning Center is to provide low-cost licensed child care for children of low-income families. The program aims to provide a loving, nurturing environment where children are encouraged to develop spiritually, emotionally, socially, academically, and physically at their own pace.
Our facility is licensed and inspected regularly by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services, The Colony Health Department, Denton County Health Department, USDA Food Assistance Program, and The Colony Fire Department. All staff are CPR and First Aid Certified and receive a minimum of 24 hours of Continuing Education annually.
We provide nutritional breakfast, lunch, and snacks each day. Our menu guidelines follow the USDA Food Assistance Program and are prepared by our onsite Registered Food Manager.
New Hope is open from 6:30AM to 6PM Monday through Friday year-round. The program provides care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. The program is funded in part by tuition payments, grants, donations, and Texas Workforce’s Child Care Services. Families must qualify based on need and income level. Current immunization records are required for all children to enroll.
What we really need are more volunteers!
The success of New Hope depends on the commitment of volunteers. The program welcomes individuals age 14 and up, generally in two-hour shifts. Time spent volunteering at the learning center counts toward service hours for middle or high school students. There is a screening process for anyone interested in our Volunteer program. Please contact the New Hope office at 972-625-2459 to learn more. You’ll be glad you did! With the volunteers we now have, it is hard to tell who is having the most fun — volunteers or children?
