Are your teachers certified?

What is CDM’s Discipline Policy?
We believe that behavioral issues provide teachable moments for children, so CDM’s philosophy is one of guidance rather than punishment. We use distraction and/or redirection for toddlers who may exhibit aggressive behavior. For preschoolers, when distraction or redirection do not work, we use problem solving skills. CDM absolutely uses no corporal punishment or time out. Please see the CDM Parent Handbook for more information.

CDM follows S. C. DSS mandates on illness, as outlined by S. C. DHEC. Please see CDM’s Parent Handbook for specific details.
Are the children taught about God?
YES, Christian education is a priority at CDM! Bible verses, stories and songs are integrated into the daily curriculum. Chapel Lessons are held weekly for children two-years and older with a pastor from First United Methodist Church of Myrtle Beach.
