Holy Covenant Child Development Center is an outreach ministry of Holy Covenant United Methodist Church. Parents and children in the CDC program are welcome and encouraged to participate in any programs offered through the Church.
Holy Covenant Child Development Center provides an early childhood program based on the developmental principles that children learn best by being actively involved in their world. Activities are planned to meet the children’s needs and stimulate learning in the developmental areas. Each day the children will participate in center time, circle time, playground time, free and planned art projects and snack. Once a month the Preschool children attend Children’s Chapel with the Director of Children’s Ministries.
Holy Covenant Child Development Center was established as an outreach ministry of Holy Covenant United Methodist Church to provide an opportunity for toddler and preschool children to work, play, and learn in a loving, and happy Christian environment. The church and school share a common philosophy of meeting the needs of children through the power of Christ.
To provide a stress-free environment that supports initiative, creativity, autonomy, and self-esteem.
To help children grow in faith by demonstrating God’s unconditional love and acceptance in our attitudes and actions.
To provide activities based on current child development theory.
To provide opportunities for children to learn about fairness, independence, cooperation, trust, self-control, empathy, sharing and kindness.
To allow children to explore and be actively involved in their world while pursuing their own interests and creativity.
Preschool classes at Holy Covenant are set up on consecutive days. The children benefit from this arrangement by adjusting to preschool more quickly and current brain development research shows that children who repeat an activity within 24 hours are more likely to remember the activity. The transition to kindergarten (five consecutive days!) is also easier.
