Philosophy & Purpose

The Presbyterian Children's Center (PCC) is an outreach ministry of First Presbyterian Church in Longview, Texas.  A preschool as well as a daycare, PCC was developed to meet the varied needs of the young child.  Research shows that the most influential years of a young child’s life are birth to the age of six - comprising  the fastest, most impressionable growth periods of their lives.  What they learn during these years will shape their attitudes about themselves and everyone around them for the rest of their lives.

In order to help facilitate this, PCC employs certified early childhood teachers for prekindergarten and kindergarten classes.  The learning experience at PCC takes place in a caring, Christian environment where each child's individuality is respected.  We believe that faith and education go hand in hand and both glorify God.

Our goal is to give each child an opportunity to grow according to God's plan, at his/her own pace, with a feeling of "joy of life" and a knowledge that God loves them.


Parent/Staff Communication


Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled in the fall and the spring. This is a specially scheduled opportunity to visit with your child's teacher concerning his/her progress. Parents are welcome to request additional conferences as needed. The Director is always available to assist in conferences or to meet privately with parents when requested.Monthly newsletters, weekly reports (ages 2-K), daily reports (Infants-Toddlers), and daily notes as needed are all means of communicating with our parents. Please refer to these notes for information concerning classroom activities, upcoming events, and specifics regarding your child.
