Welcome to Benton First's Child Enrichment Programming

My name is Tonia Hainaut, director of Benton First’s Child Enrichment Programming. We welcome you to our website and invite you to explore the resources that we have to offer. We had a vision to fulfill a growing need within our community: Quality Preschool and Afterschool Care along with Summer Programming options when school is not in session. We realize parents are searching for a safe and affordable way for their children to receive the educational and social skills training needed to prepare them for Kindergarten. We also recognize the need for child care after school until parents get off work as well as options for working parents during the summer months.

In response to these needs, Benton First UMC developed a number of programs under our Kids In Training Enrichment Center: A quality Preschool Program, our Kids In Training Afterschool Child Enrichment Programs, and two separate programs for the Summer Months in our KIT Kamp and Kiddie Kamp programs. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our many programs. I would be happy to talk or meet with you personally to discuss your child's thriving future in our Preschool, Afterschool, or Summer Care Programs.

For the sake of the KIDS!
