Covenant Education Center

Mrs. Lynn Yazzie is the director of Covenant Education Center located in Shiprock, New Mexico. Serving 30 children from the Navajo reservation, the Center offers childcare for infants, 4 months and up, pre-school kids and an afterschool program for children up to the age of 12. A busy place, especially on Wednesdays, when everyone is there!

Mrs. Yazzie’s staff of 7 works with the children to ensure they are getting good care and help to be ready for pre-school. Some of the children are private pay and others are helped with tuition from Navajo Nation Child Care Development Fund (CCDF).

While several needed repairs are big and expensive, other needs can be met with relatively small amounts, like money for paper towels, gloves, and cleaning supplies. Craft items, i.e. crayons, construction paper, magazines and glue sticks are always welcome.

Chapel is an important part of their week and the kids always pray before a meal. Grandparents have told stories about their grandchild coming to visit, “and we can’t eat unless we say grace!” What a wonderful habit to get into while they are young – giving thanks.

Thank you for considering helping our daycare and please call if you would like more information.
