We are delighted to offer a safe and caring learning environment where every child is respected, valued, and known by name.
DPCC has served young children and their families since 1949. Our current enrollment is around 150 children ranging from 9 months old to kindergarten age.
Not only are we Decatur’s best-kept Mayberry-meets-Berkley secret for child care, but we boast three hallmarks which distinguish us from other kindergartens and preschools: our level of responsiveness, our investment, and our consistency.
- Responsiveness: our ultra-low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that we listen to you and your child fully, to connect and communicate as we address needs and solve problems
- Investment: nearly every teacher here has had children attend DPCC and become a teacher afterward; thus, we are a faculty of parent-teachers
- Consistency: most teachers at DPCC have been involved with the school for at least a decade, many for five years or more
- To witness the love of God and to nurture respect for the church
- To offer rich opportunities in learning for children between the ages of 6-9 months and 6 years
- To provide experiences that encourage wholesome habits
- To develop attitudes that enable children to acquire a positive self-concept and to find satisfaction in learning with others and joy in creative efforts
- To build a solid foundation for academic learning
- To maintain a climate in which children experience and actualize Christian principles.
PhilosophyWe believe that a child's work is play, and our classroom approach reflects a creative, play-oriented philosophy. Teachers pull from a variety of published curricula to create thematic and age-appropriate units for their classes. Our program is rich in indoor and outdoor play, art, music, literature, science, social studies, reading, math readiness and Spanish.
