Our Beliefs

We believe that children are a gift from God. We believe He has given us a high calling, a privilege, and a great responsibility to provide children with the most excellent care possible. 

We believe that all children are born active learners, capable, and ready to learn.

We believe children learn best in nurturing relationships with caring, responsive, and respectful adults in rich, varied experiences.

We believe it is our duty, as early childhood professionals, to make program decisions based on what we have learned and will continue to learn about early childhood development and research-based practices.

As early childhood professionals, we believe in meeting each child’s individual needs, best interests, and family values and culture.


CDM’s Mission Statement:

To make a difference in God’s Kingdom for every child,

To partner with parents;

To support each other;

And to find joy in each day!
