CCC History & Vision

Vision

It is a fact that the initial experiences in a child’s education have the most powerful impact on his future development and, indeed, his life. However, an early childhood experience permeated by Christianity provides a child with added richness. Our program recognizes not only mental, emotional, social, and physical needs, but spiritual ones as well.

Our primary objective is the fostering of each child’s development in a Christian atmosphere, with strong attention to individual needs. This emphasis on individual attention springs from our understanding that all children differ greatly in developmental levels, life experiences, and personality. We offer a Christian program balanced with an age-appropriate structure with equal importance given to socialization and general kindergarten readiness. The Toddler program offers opportunity for beginning social skills as well as dramatic, manipulative, gross and fine motor play.

History

Saint Paul’s Christian Childhood Center is a Ministry of Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church to assist families in the early Christian training of their children. Upon approval from the voting members of Saint Paul’s congregation, the school opened its doors in September of 1996, with two programs: a two day program for 3 year olds, and a three day program for 4 year olds.

New in September of 1998, a Pre-K program was added for children who are 4 or 5 years old, as well as an extended day program for children 3-5 years of age. Extended day is designed for children of working parents/guardians who need year-round care. The Pre-K program is designed for children who need an extra year of maturation before entering kindergarten. Children must be 4 years old before the 28th of February in order to enroll in Pre-K. In the year 2002 an additional 4 year old program in the morning was added to accommodate the growing number of children needing preschool. In 2003 we added a Toddler all day program to compliment our Extended Day Preschool.
