We have summer covered.
Located in Mechanicsville, VA we offer care for school-age children in eastern Hanover and Henrico Counties and all-day summer camp for children K-6th grades!!!
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 Highland Springs/Sandston 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.
(*school availability may vary year-to-year based on enrollment and bus availability)
