Child Development Center

Skillman Child Development Center strives to provide young children opportunities to grow physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually and to develop their senses of self-worth and identity.

We believe God is the center of our lives and that He created all people. We welcome children of any race, color, religion or national origin.

Chapel is scheduled every Monday and Tuesday for 30 minutes in the North Wing. This year, our focus in studying is the New Testament and we will teach from “The Read and Learn Bible.” Chapel includes songs, storytelling, games, puppets, and drama.

Our New Testament study will include parts of the Bible/New Testament books, key figures and events, and memory work.
