Teaching Children to Soar

  • Monday - Friday 7am - 5:45pm

Eagle’s Nest Daycare & Preschool is in the heart of Acadiana at 300 Town Center Parkway in Lafayette, Louisiana.  The facilities are housed inside of Apostolic Christian School located on an all-new, beautiful 23-acre campus.  Eagle’s Nest staff believes that children are wonderfully made by God and His thoughts are precious and many towards them (Psalms 139).  With that in mind, it is our privilege to join with you to nurture your child. Welcome to a place where a lifetime of learning begins!

Staff at Eagle’s Nest enjoy their role as dedicated caregivers and facilitators of learning.  They are committed to addressing as many needs as possible of children and families in their care.  Each staff member meets or exceeds regulations set forth by the Louisiana Department of Education.  All staff are vetted using a finger-print based criminal background check.  All staff are also trained in CPR and Pediatric First Aid and mandated reported training, and staff are required to complete Louisiana Department of Education continuing learning units in addition to in-house certified Louisiana Pathways training throughout the year.

Eagle’s Nest Daycare & Preschool uses the Abeka program for ages 2-5. Abeka is a Bible-based curriculum that uses a traditional teaching approach, well-crafted tools, and hands-on activities to inspire children. We serve families with children ages six weeks through five years old.
