PURPOSE: To provide a safe, and nurturing educational experience in a Christian environment for children ages birth to age five.

A TRADITION OF SUCCESS: Windcrest United Methodist Church started Childhood Expressions Mothers’ Day Out Program on November 4, 1973. The Mother’s Day Out Program was changed to Childhood Expressions Preschool and Nursery in 1984 to clarify that a preschool curriculum and learning environment for young children was being offered. In 2012, full-time options were added and Childhood Expressions became Windcrest Day School and Child Development Center.

ACCREDITATION: In 1991 we were accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood (NAEYC) and have maintained accreditation since then. Accreditation represents consensus of the early childhood profession regarding the definition of a
high quality group program for young children. We continually strive to maintain
those standards. www.rightchoiceforkids.org.
