The mission statement at Mater Dei Child Care Center (MDCCC) is to care for young children in a nurturing, spiritual, educational environment.

The Creative Curriculum program is the base of the educational piece at the center. The center uses an assessment tool developed and distributed by the Success By 6 Early Learning Action Team in March, 2007 to measure the child’s learning by semesters. The Conscious Discipline program is used to help children achieve self-regulation. The preschoolers attend “Jesus Time” monthly at Mater Dei Church with the director.
