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: 2 1/2 (potty trained) – 12 years old
My name is Jackie (Buffy) Deveau, aka Mrs. Buffy. I am honored to be the Lead Teacher at 5C. I attended Community Christian School all through grade school and kept the lessons I learned close to my heart all throughout my life. I went on to graduate from Gering High School in 2003 and then attended WNCC in pursuit of my Associates Degree in Elementary Education.
I have been married to my “southern guy,” Amiel, for 14 years and we have been overjoyed with our two beautiful children Taylor, 13, and Tabitha, 5 that God has entrusted to us. We attend Cleansing Flame Worship Center where I am on the Worship Team and involved in kids ministry. I am passionate about Worship and love to sing my heart out to Him with every fiber of my being. He has made the ultimate sacrifice to be close to us and the least I can do is serve Him with all of my life.
I have been a teacher here at 5C for the last 2 1/2 years and feel truly blessed to be a part of the CCS family. I love witnessing the excitement on kid’s faces after they have applied something a teacher has taught them. I have realized that kids can teach us just as much as we teach them. I am dedicated to the social, emotional, and spiritual development of each child. I believe that 5C is a great spot for your child to begin their education both emotionally and academically. I look forward to partnering with you in your child’s daily care.
