The staff at the Family Worship Center Foursquare Church opened Little Blessings Daycare (LBD) in 1995 with only 25 students and 3 staff members. LBD was established to provide a loving and safe environment for working parents that were in need of childcare. The desire to open a daycare facility was strengthened by wanting to reach out to the local community of Watertown to share the love of God. Currently, LBD is caring for 140 children representing over 100 local families and employs 35 staff members.

Our mission is to partner with parents in shaping the lives of children by providing a loving and safe environment. It is our desire to set a standard of excellence and to guide the child’s educational and social development through exploration and discovery in a Christian environment. Our passion is to partner with parents in the development of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially.
As a Christian-based daycare, our hearts are focused toward the children of our community and the children of the world. We realize that the power of a simple gift can make a lifetime difference in the life of a child. We encourage our daycare parents to join and partner with Little Blessings in the local outreaches we have for the children of Watertown, and for outreaches to children around the world who live in poverty. Some of the organizations that we have partnered with are: Salvation Army, Watertown’s Beacon Center, Watertown’s Habitat for Humanity, Watertown’s PACH Program, Lake Area Child Protection Team, and Operation Christmas Child.
