General School Mission

"The Child Development Center is part of First United Methodist Church’s ministry to children and families. We share our faith with children through experiences in Christian living:
to help them see themselves as unique persons of worth
to provide an atmosphere of trust which enables the child to develop a trust in God and others
to give opportunities for choices
to live our faith be showing love, forgiveness, disciple and acceptance of all children regardless of race, creed, religion and/or sex
to enhance their understanding of God’s Word
to help them see and appreciate the beauty of God’s creation.
First United Methodist Church and the Child Development Center are aware that each child is a person with unique needs and interests. We believe children need a loving, caring atmosphere that encourages growth, exploration, development, and interaction with others and their environment. Our goal is to offer quality care and creative programs that are developmentally appropriate for children."
