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

2019-20 Year

NOW – A GREATER DAY FOR MORE MONTHS! We’re expanding our 3-hour day, 9-month calendar to 4 hours-a-day for 10 months, meeting busy Atlanta families in the world where they live and work. Our 2019-20 year begins on August 5 and ends May 29, with breaks/vacations coordinate to City Schools of Decatur.

Expanded School Day, 9-1*: Carpool will begin exactly at 9, and carpool pickup will start at 12:45. Please note that our day now includes a lunch time (previously purchased separately as “lunch bunch”) when kids eat home-packed meals and enjoy extended play time.

*Hour-long classes both before and after the DPCC school day will be planned, scheduled, conducted, and billed independently of DPCC by vendors.

A Word

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.
