Open House For Daycare


News From Thomas Memorial Day Care Center

It’s finally here!  We are ready to reopen, and we are SO excited!  Our reopening date was scheduled for January 3, 2022, which would coincide with the reopening of Marlboro County Schools after the Christmas/New Year’s Break; however we are still pending official approval from DSS. Therefore, it will be later in January.   There are many changes that we decided we would still hold an Open House to give you the opportunity to hear about all the changes and to ask any questions that you may have.  This will be held on:


DECEMBER 28, 2021  6:00 pm


Some of the items we want to cover are:

  1. Introduction of staff-Kim Thurman, our new director, has put together an awesome staff and we are so proud of all of them.  They have been working so hard to get the rooms ready and familiarize themselves with the new curriculum.


  1. New Curriculum- We will be using a new format that I think the kids will love!  It is called “God’s Little Explorers”.  It will take the kids through the entire Bible from Genesis through Revelations while incorporating traditional learning of ABC’s.  Example:  The letter “C” would cover Joseph’s coat of many colors.  Ever thought of how the “I”nsects were kept on the Arc?  Just some examples but it will include science, math, chores, loving themselves and loving others.  One thing that really makes it special is it is written not just for the Pre-K program but begins with age 2 so that all the kids will not just benefit in their early education but spiritually as well as emotionally.  Light Refreshments-We know most of you will be coming straight from work and will be hungry so we will give you something to munch on while we talk.


  1. Records-If you are a returning parent, we will have your child’s file available and would like to go through it with you to make sure everything is up to date (ex: immunization record) and check phone numbers and addresses.  It’s hard to do this in the morning when you are trying to get to work.  If you cannot come to Open House, we would love for you to stop by one day before opening and we can go over it with you.  Just give us a call.


  1. Parent Handbook-We also have updated our parent handbook and will have copies of it available.  Again, if you would like a copy in advance to review, just stop by.


  1. Light Refreshments-We know most of you will be coming straight from work and will be hungry so we will give you something to munch on while we talk.

Please know that we love these children and we have tried to make sure that when we reopen, they

will be in a Christian, loving environment each and every day.  That has always been the mission of this daycare and always will be.  Covid gave us so many “gut-punches" that caught us off guard on more than one occasion, but our mission has never changed and our resolve to accomplish that mission has never wavered.

                Our staff and our church have always supported this daycare and has believed in and prayed for us daily.  The Daycare Committee has also been very much a part of all the changes that have been made the last two months and they will be attending the Open House as well and look forward to meeting each of you.  Thank you in advance for trusting us with your child’s Christian education.  God Bless Your Family!
