About Us

Daystar Childcare Center was birthed out of the vision of South Flint Tabernacle’s Pastor, Rev. Robert Henson, to open a child care center that could operate as a ministry of the church and serve our community.  In 1998 this vision became a reality.  Since that time Daystar Childcare Center has operated as a licensed, non-profit daycare which now offers latchkey, preschool and infant/toddler care.  As a ministry of South Flint Tabernacle, we provide a warm, Christian environment where children receive the nurturing love and care they deserve with teachers who support their development and growth with age-appropriate practices.

Daystar is currently rated with 4 out of 5 stars in Michigan’s tiered quality rating and improvement system for child care providers and preschools. Daystar is open year-round and has flexible scheduling options to meet the diverse demands placed on today’s families. By being a community partner with the Great Start Readiness Program, we are able to offer FREE preschool to qualifying families. Additionally, we accept child care assistance payments through DHHS and offer free meals and snacks for all children in attendance. Each nutritious meal served at Daystar is carefully planned for and prepared by Abbey Hall & Catering in their commercial kitchen.

All of our meals and snacks meet the nutritional standards of the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Food allergies are carefully documented, ensuring the safety of each child.

Daystar is open Monday – Friday, 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Our vision is to provide the best Christian childcare in Genesee County. Contact us today to get more info or to schedule a tour!
