About Us

St. Mark United Methodist Church has established a valuable ministry through the child development center, providing quality early education and daycare services for young children.  Kids' World teachers model values and traditions that define Christian living, integrating these concepts into curriculum areas in ways that appeal to the interests of children.

Our aim is to foster a positive disposition toward learning during the early formative years of a child's life.  In this program, children don't simply gain information, but learn how to make decisions.  Knowledgeable teachers and well organized classrooms create a balanced program that addresses a child's needs in every area of development--communication and language skills, problem solving, motor development, social reasoning, self-help, and creative expression, to name a few.  Children also learn patience and compassion as they begin to interpret life through the eyes of others.

We believe in promoting positive and mutually supportive relationships with families, and we welcome all children into our Christian environment, where love and learning are a part of everyday life.

The SC Division of Child Care Licensing and Regulatory Services inspects and licenses the center, along with inspections by the fire and health departments.
