Child care is available each Sunday during the 10:00 a.m. worship service in our Baby Nursery, Rooms 3 and 4 on the lower level of the Church. The Baby Nursery, for newborns to children 3 years old, is open from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. This gives ample time to settle your child before worship and to enjoy a cup of coffee in Pilgrim Hall after worship. Our silent paging system enables us to locate parents if the need arises.
Childcare is also offered during the summer months.
Child Development Center
The Child Development Center of the First Congregational Church seeks to provide quality early care to young children between the ages of 6 weeks to 6 years of age in a Christian environment.
CDC is committed to the development of the "Whole Child," and provides a curriculum that promotes each child's emotional, social, language, cognitive, physical, and aesthetic growth. Because each child is unique with special strengths and abilities they are offered the opportunity to explore their world at their own pace, to ask questions, to express their feelings and to be free to make choices.
CDC recognizes parents as their child's first teacher and the importance of parents and teachers working together as partners to provide consistency for each child.
Parents are encouraged to participate in the program and are welcomed to visit at any time and to act as volunteers in their child's classroom, on field trips. etc. Throughout the year early learning workshops are provided on-site, parent-teacher conferences occur 3 times a year as well as a number of special events for all family members to participate in.
The CDC phone number is 203-488-2007. Their website is here.
