The purpose of Alamance Child Development Center is for the care and development of each child enrolled to enable him/her to reach his/her greatest potential--spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and socially. This is to be accomplished by providing learning and developmental experiences consistent with Christian principles
Programs are designed for each specific age classroom. Each day brings opportunities to play, investigate, and express ideas through:
Spiritual Development--Emphasis on Christian values and morals.
Group Living--Planning, working and playing in an organized setting so that desirable habits, attitudes, independence, and responsibility toward oneself and others are established.
Creative Activities--Self-expression through the use of manipulative media.
Language Experiences--Enjoying stories, poems, conversations and dramatization.
Music Experiences--Singing, listening to music and responding rhythmically to music.
Health and Safety--Learning good health habits, understanding and practicing safety rules.
Physical Activity--Indoor and outdoor play with appropriate rest.
It is our goal to provide a wide variety of experiences for your child:
...in understanding the world around him/her.
...in working as an individual and with a group.
...in developing positive behavior patterns.
...in acquiring skills for solving problems in everyday living.
...in developing a respect for self and others.
...to have the opportunity to work and play in a variety of areas.
An Interest or Waiting list form is available at the Center to indicate the time and need of childcare.
A completed form does not guarantee enrollment.

Alamance Child Development Center provides childcare primarily for working parents and is open five days a week, Monday through Friday. The Center will continue to operate in inclement weather (snow days) unless conditions are deemed hazardous to the safety and well-being of the children and staff, or in extreme cases of heat, water or electricity loss. A committee consisting of the Center Director, the President of the Board of Directors, and whenever possible, one other Board member, is responsible for determining if conditions would be detrimental to the health and well-being of the children and the staff, and the Center needs to be closed until the condition is acceptable. No credit will be given in these instances.
If a child will be absent from the Center for an extended period of time, his/her place will be held only with full weekly payments.
Basic Christian Teachings
Alamance Child Development Center is a ministry of Alamance Presbyterian Church. All children of any race, color, nationality and ethnic origin are eligible to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to children at the Center.
Basic doctrines of the Presbyterian Church will not be taught, although children attending the Center will be made aware of Christian beliefs.
Information concerning the operation of the Center in cases of inclement weather will be shared on the Remind app so that all staff and families will be aware of delays or closures. Announcements may also be made on TV channels 2 and 8.
