Our program facilitates out of the east side of the church (door # 11) providing before and after school care as well as summer camp for children Kindergarten through 6th grade.
R.O.C.K. is a place where children learn, grow and belong. We have been an important part of the Zionsville community since the 1980's serving hundreds of families through the years. R.O.C.K. is not just a safe, fun place for children to be loved and nurtured while their parents are at work, it is also a place where children can grow and develop healthy relationships with their peers as well as adults. They will engage in activities that will allow them to develop values, build character and mature spiritually, all while having fun. They are offered a variety of activities each day that will keep them interested while becoming well developed in all areas. They are encouraged to live out Christian values and embrace who God created them to be.
