Choosing the right preschool or daycare center is a tough decision for parents, particularly when it’s the first child. You are likely already feeling anxiety about leaving your little little one in the care of strangers, so how do you decide?
It’s important to remember that the preschool or daycare center that you select will play an important role in your child’s early education and development. A professional preschool is so much more than a baby-sitting service. A good center will provide a safe, comfortable environment that is structured and supervised, with clear educational objectives and an established curriculum.
St. Paul’s Lutheran Church established the Christian Day School (CDS) in September 1968, as an outreach to the community. In the first years of operation, classes were held in the mornings either two or three days per week. As our school grew, greater choices were developed for all age groups. Our building has nine well equipped classrooms.
St. Paul CDS is a New York State licensed program. We offer half-day and full-day sessions, breakfast and late-pick-up for children eighteen months through five years. We are very proud of our park-like safe school playground which was recently refurbished with new equipment thanks to our Enrichment Fund Parent Volunteers. These parents worked on amazing fundraisers to help pay for our new playground and gym equipment
