SGPC CDC provides developmentally appropriate care and education for children ages two through four years through our Preschool program and for children ages three through fifth grade through our Extended Care and After School programs. Care is taken to provide an environment which is both stimulating and nurturing. We offer a place where children actively participate in a variety of experiences designed to encourage the development of the whole child: physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.

Our teaching practices are based on guidelines developed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our Center is DSS licensed. All of our student/teacher ratios are well below DSS guidelines.

The emphasis of our program is on developing social skills and competency in everyday dealings with both people and objects in the world around us. Each child’s development of a positive self-image and the ability to make choices is important to us. In all we do, we are striving to lay a firm foundation for Christian faith as each child matures and grows in his understanding of who God is and his or her importance to God.



The first day of Preschool and Extended Care programs is Monday, August 25, 2014 or Tuesday August 26,2014 for the Three Day Classes.

The first day of the Afterschool Program is August 18, 2014.
