Southern’s Childcare program is designed for children ages 18 months to four years of age. Once registered, each child’s place in the program will be reserved for the entire semester, allowing families to depend on SBTS as part of their weekly routine. Parents are able to choose between two options of care: once a week (Mondays) or twice a week (Tuesdays/Thursdays). During their time in Southern Childcare, children will be introduced to the alphabet, numbers 1- 10, and color recognition. For more information about this program, please contact our Coordinator of Childcare, Ashley Akesson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information such as specific policies will be listed on the registration page for your convenience.
Drop In – 6:30p.m.- 7:30p.m.

Last semester, we started an open house night for the childcare program so that you and your kiddos can get to know our teachers/us get to know your kids, hear more about what we do, & get up to date on all our new policies. This is something my staff and I implemented last semester to better serve our families and we found it especially helpful for our new parents/kiddos to hopefully help ease those first day jitters and just make sure we are all on the same page before the session starts. No registration is needed except for your initial childcare program registration.
