5C Day Care

5C is established as a service to the families and children of CCS and the community.  We have between 40-50 children enrolled in our early childhood care each year and 15-25 School Age children that need to be here after school and for summer care. We are a wrap-around care center in that we take children whose parents have a varying schedule. Along with our 5 to 9 staff members, we run our program year round.

Our children have a full day of many activities some of which are: sharing and conversation time; bible and regular stories, praying, songs and finger plays: creative art activities and crafts: dramatic play; games and large muscle activities; science and nature activities; activities including outdoor play, individual and group play; active and quiet play; and rest time. You name it, we have loads of fun!
Our prayer is that we can help each family – serving in their need for child care, help the teachers in preparing the way for young children to be ready for school, and for all the children to come to know Jesus as their Savior. We are licensed by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
Hours: Monday – Friday 6:00 am – 6:00 pm (year round)
Age: 18 months – 5 years old      After School Care: Elementary Age  

Hi, my name is Michele Kuxhausen. I have 4 children of my own, Danielle, Kyle, Guadalupe, and Priscilla. I also have one grandchild, Vanity. I have been teaching since 2009 throughout Gering and Scottsbluff. I graduated from Chadron State College in 2010 with my Bachelors Degree in elementary education.  I am currently working on my Masters Degree in curriculum and special education.  I worked for 3 years in the Head Start program.  I have taught many years of Sunday School and Wednesday night youth group.  I love volunteering as a youth sponsor for events at church.  I have been a Scout leader in both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. I am currently a 4H leader for Code Valley 4H Club. I am excited to get back into teaching preschool! There is nothing better than the sparkle in their eye when they learn something new.  I have a passion for teaching and for the Lord.  Getting to do both things is a great blessing for me.  I cannot wait to see how the Lord helps us grow this year!
