About us

Learn about our history & mission and meet our awesome staff members! 

More than just a Day Care

Bethany Day Care Center was founded in 1974 as a ministry of Bethany Bible Church. The church is at the heart of what we do! It is our hope that you and your family will not only find a safe place for the care & education of your child but also a place to call home as part of our church family.

Along with our childcare, Kindergarten, & other programs, the church has many exciting opportunities for your kids throughout the year including an annual Winter Carnival, Trunk-or-Treat, Fall Festival, B3 Basketball program, AWANA Kids Club and more!

Come join us on a Sunday morning at 11am for service while your kids can attend a fun, interactive children’s program!

 

Since 1974

We began in 1974 under the vision and oversight of Mrs. Vesta Losen who retired in August 2016. Cherie Losen, who has worked at BDCC for over 25 years, took over as the Director in 2016. Since opening, we have cared for over 7,000 children!

The current building was constructed in 1998 and includes 5 classrooms, an office area, a kitchen, great room and gymnasium. We have several outdoor play areas as well.

Our Promise

47 + Years of Experience You Can Trust

We have provided solid academic training and lifelong character traits founded in Biblical principles to the many children who have come through our doors.

We Love Every Child

Every child is a gift from God with unique qualities that are appreciated and nurtured by our staff.

Provide Quality Education

We are known in the community for our strong academics through our Preschool, Kindergarten and Elementary programs.

Our Staff

All of our staff members complete a background check & child safety course. Screenings are done according to Michigan Licensing regulations. Fingerprinting and FBI background checks have been completed. You can trust your children are in good hands!
