The Child Development Center at First Presbyterian Church Gainesville, Georgia was founded in 1957 and continues as an important part of our ministry and outreach to the community. As such, it is one of the leading child care facilities in Northeast Georgia.
Our staff is committed to providing high quality, full-day, developmental care for infants 6 weeks old through children 5 years of age (Pre-K). A program for school-age children is provided during the summer. Within the framework of a Christian atmosphere and in an attractive, safe environment, the Center provides individual and group learning experiences to assure the child’s progress toward the development of a strong Christian character and responsible citizenship.

BODY MIND AND SPIRIT
Caring for your child’s physical needs is just the beginning of our commitment as child care providers.
- healthy meals and snacks,
- regular physical activity in our gymnasium or our playground,
- consistent attention
- state-of-the-art security entrances and video surveilance to help keep your child safe.
Through educational play, we help little minds grow and encourage curiousity about learning new things. From our infant rooms to our Pre-K and summer programs, we are focused on exploring and growing bright young minds.
In order to be whole, a child must develop spiritually as well as physically, mentally, and emotionally. Therefore, the Child Development Center blends attentive day care with educational opportunities in all areas of development. For spiritual growth, the Center teaches Christian values and provides opportunities for worship each week during Chapel.
In addition, each summer the children participate in Vacation Bible School.
We invite you to come for a tour to learn more about the loving, educational environment of First Presbyterian Child Development Center.
Annual registration for the Child Development Center is held each spring, however, enrollment opportunities are available year round. Members of First Presbyterian Church are given an opportunity to register first, and then registration is opened to the rest of the community.
