Shandon Presbyterian Child Development Center has been in operation since 1958.
SPCDC is an extension of the church's ministry to and for children of all races, creeds, and religious backgrounds. We seek to provide a Christian nurturing environment that encourages the social, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth of children. Through a variety of programs in physical activity and group interaction, plus creative learning in art, language, science, number exploration, movement and music, the child will grow to develop a good image of his/her own worth as a child of God. Our Mission is "to teach and care for children in a nurturing, Christian environment that encourages their social, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth." Our Vision is "for every child to feel safe, loved, and valued."
The Child Development Center is an integral part of Shandon Presbyterian Church's Ministry to children. The policy-making and governing body of the Presbyterian Church is the Session. The Session supervises the work of the Child Development Center through the Weekday Ministry Committee. The members of the committee include teachers, parents and church representatives. The Director, the Business Manager and the Minister also serve on the Committee.
Grievances: Parents are welcome to visit the Center at any time. Should parents have any grievances or questions regarding their children, the concern is to be handled first through the teacher, then the director, then the SPCDC Weekday Ministry Committee, and finally, the Session.
