Our 2021 Pre-k Graduates

Welcome to the CCC

We are an extended day Christian preschool that offers care for children ages 6 weeks to Pre-k.   Our program focuses on developmentally appropriate practice meeting the individual needs of each child.  It is our belief that children and their families benefit immensely from participation in early education, and it is our honor and privilege to share in this early childhood experience. 

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-old’s, and a three-day program for 4-year-old’s. 

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. Over the past several years, part day programs were in less demand, so we added more extended day. 

In September 2019, The CCC added an infant room. We now serve children from six weeks old to pre-k for full days.

About Us

St. Paul’s Christian Childhood Center’s (CCC) Primary objective is the fostering of each child’s development in a Christian atmosphere, with strong attention to individual needs. 

St. Paul's Christian Childhood Center serves approximately 60 children each week through an extended-day Preschool program (daycare) for ages 6 weeks to Pre-Kindergarten. It is a fact that the initial experiences in a child’s education have the most powerful impact on their future development and, indeed, their 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. We offer a Christian program balanced with an age appropriate structure with equal importance given to socialization and general kindergarten readiness. The Infant and Toddler program offers opportunity for beginning social skills as well as dramatic, manipulative, gross and fine motor play.
