Our Philosophy

Morning Star Child Development Center (CDC) provides exemplary child care for Infants through Kindergarten in a loving, clean, safe, and stimulating environment.

Morning Star Child Development Center is a ministry of Woodbridge Church of the Nazarene.  We are strongly committed to the spiritual development of children in our school. We seek to provide each child with a basic understanding of the Christian faith through Bible stories, songs, games and activities.   The following are our identified Core Values:

Love... Children will know they are loved and be taught to love God, themselves, and one another.

Children... Each child is a unique individual with God given talents and abilities and the potential to become all He created them to be. Children develop in all domains, socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually in an environment where individual abilities, strengths, needs, differences, and preferences are accepted, celebrated, and supported.

Families... We will partner with families as the primary influence in their child's lives. We can best understand the child within the context of his or her own family and we encourage family participation in all aspects of our program.

Education... Our curriculum choices and programs are rooted in and viewed through the lens of God's Word.  Our hands-on learning environment is designed with an understanding of child development, knowledge of each child's strengths, interests, and needs, and an awareness of their social and cultural uniqueness.

Staff... We value and affirm our staff as professionals providing the best possible early childhood care and education to the children entrusted to them.

2019-2020 Curriculum

The ABCJesusLovesMe Preschool Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based preschool curriculum focusing on Bible, academics, and development. Each curriculum contains goals and objectives to gauge the child's learning and growth. Beyond the weekly lesson plans, ideas, and materials are provided to support parents and teachers along the way.

We Believe:

We believe children are blessings from God.  He has created each child unique and special.  Learning should be incorporated into the child's day instead of controlling his/her day.  We believe preschoolers should be able to explore, play, and learn new things through trial and error; not through "drill and kill."  Our simple and basic curriculum allows success for the most energetic child but allows for supplemental material to be added for the child who desires more sit-down activities.
