The Silo Center Child Care programs are the realization of a dream New Hope Church had to create a community hub offering resources, training, and support to help all people reach their God-given potential. We offer three great programs for kids in one great location. Go ahead, check them out!
SILO CENTER PRESCHOOL
Half day preschool for children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years old. Three, four, and five day a week classes are available.
The Back Pack
Before and after school program for kindergartners through sixth graders. We gladly serve the following local schools: Halley, Silverbrook, Newington Forest, Laurel Hill, Sangster and Lorton Station.
Nine week, full-day summer camp for kids that are rising kindergartners through rising seventh graders.
A before and after camp program is available as well.
The Silo Center Preschool's mission is to be a place where children can be children in a loving, playful atmosphere that nurtures development of social skills, curiosity, conflict resolution and problem solving; all key elements necessary to engage your child in learning. Our qualified teachers will partner with you to love your child, nourish them spiritually in a Christian atmosphere where everyone is respected and accepted. We understand that childhood is not a race but a journey. Learning should be appropriate to each foundational stage of development. Let us share with you our secure, state of the art facility with age appropriate playgrounds, both inside and outside, low child-to-teacher ratios and trained staff. We take seriously our commitment to excellence in loving and teaching your child.
What do kids carry with them almost 24/7 throughout the school year? You're right, a back pack! Well we have our own meaning for a “back pack”. We say Back stands for Before & After Care Kids…and we have a Pack of ‘em at our program!
The Back Pack is designed to offer kids a different approach to before and after school care. With all of the innovative features of our “New Hope Church” facility and a staff who will work closely with the kids to provide structure, guidance, and expert advice, the Back Pack is a place your kids will want to be. We believe that it is important to provide a stimulating, encouraging fun family-style atmosphere, where everyone is safe, treated with care and respect, and where kids, parents, and staff work together as a “community”.
Come and explore Camp Whatakid, a place where kids between the ages of 5 and 12, rising kindergartners through rising 7th graders, will make new friends, be curious and creative, learn valuable skills, and experience an unforgettable summer filled with fun and excitement.
