Pritchard Child Development Center

Group tours of the center are conducted on the second Friday of every month at noon. Tours last 20-30 minutes and do not require a reservation to attend. Simply ring the bell outside the center and someone will greet you. Our waitlist is first come, first serve with active church members and current families taking priority. We typically have an extensive waitlist for most age groups.
There is a $100 non-refundable fee (per family) to join our waitlist and space is not guaranteed. The fee must be paid when registering.

Our curriculum provides a framework on which teachers can build an early childhood program that allows children to grow and develop. Using The Creative Curriculum approach, we balance both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths.  We use the WEE learn curriculum to introduce Bible stories and Christian ideas.

Enrichment programs are also offered weekly Jump Bunch (the parents pay a fee to the Jump Bunch Company), monthly Chapel with one of our ministers, weekly music class for Toddlers and up and a weekly Spanish class for Twos and up.

Field trips to expand on classroom studies are planned periodically for our three year old classes and older.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is offered to children who have already attended a 4 year old program but need another year to develop socially, physically, or academically before enrolling in kindergarten. The TK program is a relaxed, fun atmosphere which encourages success. The program is designed to enhance developmental skills important to kindergarten readiness, such as visual and auditory perception skills, language skills, and fine and gross motor skills, and is taught by a NC certified elementary school teacher.

Family social events are planned throughout the year, including a Christmas Breakfast and a Spring Family Picnic. We have an informal parent group that helps by enlisting class moms/dads, planning fundraisers, and honoring our staff through various appreciation events. The center hosts a Scholastic Book Fair once a year.

our team

We are pleased with the longevity of our lead teachers, many of whom have been with us for more than 10 years. All staff members attend training opportunities in health and emergency care, CPR and first aid, sanitation, and appropriate teaching methods. All staff members have background checks and physical examinations. Our kitchen manager plans and prepares nutritious meals and snacks on site.
