Welcome to Growing Friends Child Care and Preschool Program! We are a fully licensed
center located within Winterstown United Methodist Church and we are going on 25 years now.
We are a nonprofit organization, so we have a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. We
greatly appreciate your help through our fundraisers as we strive to do as much as possible here
for the children and staff to continue our small business! Abby Streett and Danielle Orwig are
the center’s directors. Our mission is to provide children with a loving atmosphere that will help
them grow both socially and academically.
The center is open Monday through Friday from 6AM to 6PM. We are closed on major
holidays. The center enrolls children 6 weeks of age through 6 th grade. Growing Friends offers
full time care for all ages and part time care and hourly as needed for our school age children.
During the school year, we have a 3’s Preschool Program that meets Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 9AM to 11:30AM. Our 4’s Preschool Program meets Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays
from 9AM to 11:30AM. We purchased a van, and we transport to Stewartstown Elementary
daily. During the summer we run a summer camp where the children do a variety of activities.
Mondays the children go bowling, Tuesdays our younger children have water day, Wednesdays
the children go on a field trip (such as REVS, Zoo, Factories, Lakes, etc.) or we have a center
activity here. Thursdays the older children swim at Green Valley Pool. Then we conclude our
summer camp week with a whole center picnic on Fridays out at our pavilion.
At this time, we do have a very full center, and have cut off our waiting list because it is
so lengthy but if you’re interested in employment opportunities, please feel free to email/call
us! We will start enrolling for our preschool program come March of the new year for the
upcoming school year!
