Child Development Center Calendar


The philosophy of the Child Development Center is to give children acceptance, affection, and approval so they learn to relate to God, to themselves, and to the world around them.

Our goal of this Christian-oriented program is to make each child aware of the fact that he or she is a child of God, loved by Him, by us, and by those around him or her.  Children should know that they are unique, individual people.  They are loved for who they are, not for what they can do.  By exposing the children to many experiences and materials, they will develop their thinking and listening skills and acquire knowledge.  The child and his/her social and emotional development is our emphasis.  We truly feel that each child has a God-given right to be himself or herself.  We strive to guide the child in discovering who that self is.
