The AMOS Child Care Center is a ministry devoted to children and families.  Our mission is to provide safe child care at a cost which working and going to school families can afford.  Our rates are low by comparison to other centers in our community.


We care for children 6 weeks through pre- school, after school for elementary children.



Fair Trade provides the opportunity for crafters in Third World Countries to market their creations in a setting which allows them the set a fair price for their products. For us it is the linking of our communitywith the wider world brining a sense of partnership and harmony.
