5C Day Care

5C is established as a service to the families and children of CCS and the community.  Each year we serve 40-50 children, infant through PreKindergarten and 15-20 students for after-school care. Care is available 5-days a week and on a limited drop-in basis. We operate year-round with an exciting summer program for all ages. 

Our children have a full day of many activities including: sharing and conversation time, bible lessons and prayer, story time, music and dance, art and crafts: dramatic play; games for gross motor skills, science and nature activities, outdoor play, individual and group play, and rest time. Your child will have a fun and fulling day every day!
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)

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!
