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; EVERY PARENT AND STUDENT OF ELIGIBLE AGE IN OUR COMMUNITY MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION. 

A NEW BEGINNING . . .

OUR SAFE SCHOOL

 

 

DPCC’s invigorated return to school in 2022-23 school year  has child safety at its singular focus as we continue to carefully and thoughtfully realize all relevant data, as well as employ all guidelines and procedures recommended by scientists and healthcare professionals. Measures include:  

 

Parents agree to and sign a contract to be careful, transparent, and communicative about their family’s state of health and potential exposure in a symptom-forward/test-based approach

 

Symptom-forward preventative caution: parents keep students with respiratory symptoms at home and refrain rom sending them to school with anything contagious or infectious

 

Test-to-leave/test-to-stay: when symptoms occur, tests are necessary to secure community safety and assure continued attendance; when a case of COVID occurs, students in class are required to test daily and be symptom-free to continue

 

— Along with this 2-part policy approach, our 100% vaccinated community affords us the ability to uniquely operate with safety unmasked — which preschoolers and kindergartners desperately need so they can learn how to read feelings and thoughts based on facial expression, and also discover/practice appropriate ways to express themselves facially

 

 

 

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.
