Child Development Center Preschool


The Child Development Center, a preschool operated by St. Philip Neri, fills a substantial need of both our Parish and community by preparing preschool-aged children with those skills required to enter kindergarten. It also offers children the experience of a Christian way of life. This program is open to children that are two, three or four years old. Attendees must be age-appropriate by September 1st. Sessions take place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday during the months of September through May.


The goals of the Child Development Center, which are designed to be age- and developmentally-appropriate to optimize the preschoolers learning experience, include:


To provide a safe, nurturing and child-centered environment for all children, including those who may have special needs.

To play and create a program based on the developmental milestones in a young child’s life, using appropriate lessons and activities to foster his or her developmental growth.

To provide a program that will nurture confidence, learning, and caring.

To show children and their families, on a daily basis, how special they are to us and God.
