Child Development Center
OUR PHILOSOPHY - "LEARNING THROUGH LOVE"
Our philosophy maintains that a child should have a safe and nurturing environment in which to grow spiritually, socially, physically, and emotionally. We believe that preschool children learn through their five senses and that they develop their senses through hands-on activities. All activities will be developmentally appropriate.
The Child Development Center will provide a Christian atmosphere for the children. They will be given opportunities to become aware of God so that they can respond to Him in faith and love. This will enable them to grow as children of God, rooted in the Christian faith. Spiritual concepts will be woven throughout the day's instruction in Bible stories, songs, and scripture. It is believed that children learn through watching, hearing, and modeling; therefore, every staff member and teacher will be aware of the role they play in the Christian development of young children.
Children attend weekly music and chapel class in addition to their classroom activities. They also attend monthly story time at the Mount Laurel library.

The Child Development Center is an extension of ministry to families by Double Oak Community Church. In fulfilling God's assignment to bring up and biblically educate their children, parents often call on churches and Christian schools to support them in this important work. To effectively work toward the common goal of educating young children based on God's Word, we commit to the following goals:
Provide a nurturing, developmentally appropriate environment that encourages each child
Provide a curriculum that is Biblically based and includes Bible stories that are appropriate to the child's level of understanding
Provide teachers who profess Christ as Savior and exhibit Christian traits in caring for children and their families
Provide ministry to the families who bring their children into our program
