Child Development Center

The mission of Grace Child Development Center is to provide all children the opportunity to grow emotionally, spiritually, physically, and academically through activities which strengthen their minds, bodies, and love of God. 


Grace Child Development Center:

Grace “CDC” started over thirty years ago, beginning with Children’s Day Out and then expanding to offer preschool and kindergarten classes. These programs continue to be offered at Grace, with over 150 students enrolled. Grace CDC is open to the community, not just to Grace UMC members. 

Grace CDC is located on the lower floor of the Asbury Building, which is located just across the parking lot by the playground visible from Georgia Avenue.  Our small facility helps provide a warm, nurturing environment for young children.  

Grace CDC offers Children’s Day Out classes for infants through two year-olds, and preschool and kindergarten classes for three to five year olds. Additional programs include Early Care and Lunch Bunch for preschool children, as well as Summer Children’s Day Out for infants through 5K.
