The First Presbyterian Child Development Center after-school program was established in 1994 for K through sixth grade children whose parents work and need supervision for their children beyond the regular school day. This program acts as a transition between the regular school day and home. It also allows school-age children to continue in our program and keeps siblings together as much as possible. This program is extended through the summer months and is offered from 6:45am to 5:45pm, Monday through Friday. The atmosphere is relaxed, choices of activities are available and ground rules are followed.
The Center is operated on the lower floor of the Christian education building from 6:45am to 5:45pm, Monday through Friday. It offers an enriched Day Care program which meets the highest standards of early childhood education, certified by the AA license from the state of North Carolina. Staff members are carefully selected and are people who have a genuine love and understanding of children.
Information about the Child Development Center and the School-age Program is available by contacting the Director, Amy Cole, or Assistant Director Karen Barnes, at (919) 775-2822.
Because of the large demand for child care, waiting lists are long and parents are encouraged to submit their child’s name as soon as possible. Members of the First Presbyterian Church will be given top priority on the waiting list.
The purpose of First Presbyterian Child Development Center is to provide a primary service for working parents by offering a comprehensive Child Development program within a Christian context for infants through five year olds. This means parents, church members and the center work in close harmony with a single goal, giving all children an opportunity to reach their full potential in all areas of development.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
