Welcome to Precious Treasures Inc., a Learning and Child Care Center of the West Lafayette United Methodist Church. Our program is set upon the belief that every child deserves a safe, supportive and educationally fun child care environment! Our goals for the children, with an emphasis on Christian values, are as follows:

1. To help a child feel good about him/herself.
2. For a child to feel confident enough to share his/her own unique talents and to learn new things.
3. For a child to become independent and self reliant for his/her age level.
4. For a child to learn positive ways to relate to others, both children and adults.
5. To develop a belief that learning is fun.
6. To develop healthy habits for a healthy lifestyle.
