Located in Mechanicsville, VA we offer care for school-age children in eastern Hanover and Henrico Counties.
CELEBRATING our 20th year!
The Fairmount Christian Child Care began in the fall of 1996 through a generous gift from anonymous donors who wished to see a faith-based after-school child care. Today we serve the Mechanicsville/Cold Harbor area of Hanover County and the Sandston/Varina area of Henrico County. We began with roughly 35 children from three schools using a small building located on the property of Fairmount Christian Church. Since the, we have grown to accommodate upwards of 100+ students in grades K-6th. The Fairmount Child Care utilizes the Family Life Center of Fairmount Christian Church which consists of a high school-sized gym and classrooms.
During the school year
Morning Care - before school care if offered beginning at 6:30am until 7:30am when children are either picked up by the Hanover County School Bus or transported by us to school.
(note: morning care is offered only for students of Hanover County Public Schools)
Afternoon Care - after school care is offered each afternoon. Students are divided into class based on grade and age. Each Group has an afternoon schedule that features:

Early Dismissal Days - When Hanover or Henrico County Schools release school early we provide care for the extended afternoon. Snack is still served by the Child Care at 3:00pm.
School Holiday - The Child Care is open on most school holidays 6:30am to 6:00pm. There is a $15/per family charge for those attending on school holidays. On these days we offer field trips, cooking class, art class, and other activities.
(Note: for the weeks of Christmas Vacation and Spring Break only the regular school year tuition is due, but is charged whether your child attends or not.)
During the summer:
We also offer an all-day summer program (6:30am to 6:00pm) for students going into Kindergarten to going into 7th grade. Our summers are divided up into theme weeks with activities and field trips coinciding with the week's theme.
