Education and Childcare Resources

One of the most important decisions we make as parents and caregivers is who takes care of our kids when it isn’t us. Luckily, Rome has plenty of great options to choose from.

  1. The Children’s Academy …. grateful to have our son Oliver in the right place right after we moved back to Rome. I highly recommend this place. Oliver has learned so much and he is always happy to go to play and learn every morning. Thank you for all you do.

  2. Unity Christian is AMAZING! Our daughter is starting her fourth year since beginning at age 3. We’re so grateful all she’s learning about our Lord, whilst receiving a top notch academic education. Everyone of her teachers have made such a positive impact & hold special places in our hearts. I can’t brag on the administration and staff enough either; they make it a priority to share God’s love with each student.
