Early Childhood Services in Frankfort

Programs that promote early education and health can have a positive effect on children’s health and behaviors later in life.

We believe "play" is a child's work and our curriculum is play-based. Through developmentally-appropriate, choice-based play activities, children can make decisions and discoveries. This allows them to make sense of their world.

We partner with parents/guardians to help children develop to their full potential. Because of this, family participation throughout the day is welcomed and encouraged. Our programs include:

Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital Child Development Center

Serves children ages four weeks - 3 years of age. The program is open Monday - Friday from 7 am - 6 pm.

Safe Sitter® Classes

Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital is proud to help ensure safety and high quality care in our community through Safe Sitter classes taught by a certified instructor. The physician who founded the Safe Sitter program recognized that young children are vulnerable when cared for by unprepared providers. She created this program to teach young teens how to be better, safer babysitters.

For more than 35 years, Safe Sitter® has been a leader in providing life skills, safety skills, and child care training for youth. Safe Sitter® continues to help build safer communities by providing youth with the skills they need to be safe while home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

Safe Sitter classes are offered twice a year at local elementary schools for children 11 - 13. Safe Sitter teaches choking rescue, basic first aid, how to screen potential babysitting jobs, diapering, and much more.
