MARK 9 :36-37 

He took a child and had him stand among them. Taking him into his arms he said to them,  whoever welcomes one of these children in my name welcomes me,  and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me,  but the one who sent me.

Our Mission: 

Christ-centered beginnings for a life of learning.   

Personalized Program: 

 MPPCCC limits enrollment to 42 children in the building at any given time.  The children are divided into age-specific  classroom settings.  As a result, we provide a personal relationship with each child and their family.  We encourage  family involvement and believe early childhood education is based on a partnership between parents, teachers and  students.



Dedicated Professionals: 

The MPPCCC teaching staff are committed, degreed professionals and their longevity provides families and children with consistency and continuity. 

We provide 3 flexible, family-friendly program options: 

·         Full Day Program (includes Preschool Program) over five hours during the hours of 6:30 AM – 5:30 PM

·         AM/PM Program – up to five hours in the morning or the afternoon.

·         Preschool Program – 8:00 – 11:30 AM

Established Reputation: 

Since 1969, MPPCCC has built a reputation for providing quality year-round early childhood education and child care.

MPPCCC is dedicated to the following core behaviors:

·         We believe children should learn in a caring, Christ-centered environment with dedicated well-prepared staff.

·         We believe children are at the beginning stages of a life of learning and we will be deliberate at showing them God’s world.

·         We believe children can be best nurtured in a learning environment that prepares them for the challenges of their continued education.

·         We believe that children should have a learning environment that positively nurtures the physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual and relational dimensions of their young lives.

·         We believe character building begins at the earliest stages of life and therefore must be taught and modeled.


Please tell your friends, family and acquaintances we are accepting enrollment applications for SUMMER, FALL, and SPRING. We enroll on a first come first serve basis. If a classroom is full, you have the opportunity to put your child's name on a waiting list. Many parents will register their child 6-9 months in advance to ensure a spot for their child in our center.  Those interested in attending should call the center office at 289-6483 for information and to arrange for a tour. .
