DPCC’s Mission & Vision
Not only are we Decatur’s best-kept Mayberry-meets-Berkley secret for child care, but we boast three hallmarks which distinguish us from other kindergartens and preschools: our level of responsiveness, our investment, and our consistency.
Responsiveness: our ultra-low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that we listen to you and your child fully, to connect and communicate as we address needs and solve problems
Investment: nearly every teacher here has had children attend DPCC and become a teacher afterward; thus, we are a faculty of parent-teachers
Consistency: most teachers at DPCC have been involved with the school for at least a decade, many for five years or more
DPCC IS A 100% IMMUNIZED SCHOOL. EVERY STUDENT WHO ATTENDS MUST HAVE AN UNEXPIRED, UPDATED, AND VALID GEORGIA 3231 VACCINATION FORM ON FILE WITH US.

DPCC happily hosts superior quality 4-hour (9-1) days of play and growth for your children, 10 months of the year. Our 2020-21 year begins with August 6th back-to-school night/August 7th orientation/August 10th first day, and ends May 28. Our breaks/vacations coordinate with City Schools of Decatur.
Art & Play is offered from 8-9 before school every day, and a variety of enrichment classes are available every day from 1-2. These hour-long additions both before and after the DPCC school day are planned, scheduled, conducted, and billed independently of DPCC by vendors.
M-F, 8-9: DPCC veteran mom and teacher Amy Wilson administrates Art & Play, an early hour of play-based creativity and fun, assisted by fellow teachers. Inquire at Amy@Whobodyinc.com and schedule at https://signup.com/go/pjivscm .

From The Director
We welcome children in the full bloom of their childhood as did Christ, with open arms. We believe play is not just a good idea, but the absolute best way children learn and grow. We strive to create a first home-away-from-home experience that makes kids happy to wake up and eager to come to school. We know that education becomes a way of life when learning is a routine that’s fun. Lastly, we are convicted that the education of the heart is every bit as critical in the formation of a full person as is that of the mind; that is, we nurture presence in love.
We offer exemplary nursery care for a one or two-day Parent Morning Out program. Our 2 to 4-year-old classes are intimate and warm, with a low teacher-student ratio. Our fantastic kindergarten grows from its history as one of the oldest private programs in the entire metro area.
