The child care center was founded in 1991, offers continuous Christian centered child care to infants eight weeks in age to kindergarten. St. Timothy saw the need to revise the building layout to provide better security for the entering and exit of children and parents. The expansion will also increase capacity by 20% with the addition of one classroom, and revise the parking lay out. The building is expected to be completed in September, 2015. St. Timothy Pastor Dean Hunneshagen, Day Care Director Lydia Shiposki and Town Supervisor Mary Cooke were the official groundbreakers at the ceremony.
