"At Polk Street UMC's Child Development Center, we want children to:
Develop an ability to communicate with teachers and classmates, to hear and imitate sounds used to form words, and to understand and follow simple instructions.
Develop an awareness and appreciation of music and drama.
Become life-long learners and lovers of learning.
Become both planners and decision-makers.
Learn more about self and others through informal role play.
Become able to be attentive and to concentrate.
Develop a growing concept of the relationship of numbers, time, space and form.
Have opportunities for using art and craft materials.
Become able to make wise choices for their own well-being and that of others.
Become aware that each person is worthy of God's love and the love of others.
Experience the loving care of adults whose own lives exemplify commitment to the Christian community.
