About Windcrest Day School and CDC
Welcome to Windcrest Day School and Child Development Center. Our program is considered an important outreach ministry of Windcrest United Methodist Church. We are a non-profit, church-related school.
Hours of Operation
To provide a safe and nurturing educational experience in a Christian environment for children ages birth to age five.
A Tradition of Success
Windcrest United Methodist Church started Childhood Expressions Mother's Day Out Program on November 4, 1973. The Mother's Day Out Program was changed to Childhood Expressions Preschool and Nursery in 1984 to clarify that as preschool curriculum and learning environment for young children was being offered. In 2012, full-time options were added and Childhood Expressions became Windcrest Day School and Child Development Center.
In May 1991, Childhood Expressions received national accreditation from the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, a division of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Accreditation represents consensus of the early childhood profession regarding the definition of a high quality group program for young children. We continually strive to maintain those standards. Our parent information board has our most recent re-accreditation award. Please visit www.rightchoiceforkids.org for more information.
Our qualified staff members are loving and highly trained, possessing Associate, Bachelors and Graduate degrees and over 150 years of combined experience.
Enrollment and Registration
We accept children 2 months (after the first immunizations) through 5 years of age. Enrollment is limited to ensure a low staff/child ratio. We are open to all faiths, abilities and ethnic backgrounds. Registration fees are due upon registration and are non-refundable. The placement of children in individual classrooms is based on the following: chronological age, appropriateness of a class based on developmental and readiness factors, number of days enrolled and/or schedule desired and days available. Before admission, a registration form with fee must be submitted. Enrollment packets are available at the time of registration. Registration occurs annually for both the Day School and Child Development Center in the month of February.
Windcrest Day School and Child Development Center provides school tours, Meet the Teacher, Parent Orientation, Open House and several conferences throughout the year.
We take children as drop-ins in our Day School program, on a space-available basis. Payment for a drop-in is to be paid that day. Parents may drop their child off during Day School, Early Bird (7:00 to 9:00 am) and/or Gift of Time (2:00 to 6:00 pm).
