Welcome

There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about our Child Care, Nursery School and Kindergarten. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.  

Our mission is to create and maintain an educational community which provides the highest quality early childhood learning experiences in a safe, nurturing and creative environment. Through a play based, developmentally appropriate curriculum centered around spirituality, we offer young children an environment filled with discovery. We instill in our children an excitement to be life long learners. WECEP provides children the opportunity to develop social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive skills. These skills are the building blocks of a strong foundation for future academic and social success.

Westminster Nursery School opened its doors in the fall of 1958 when Westminster Presbyterian Church recognized the need for a community preschool. Originally, the program enrolled 30 children and offered two classes. 

Over the years, we have seen an increase in building size, the addition of indoor and outdoor play spaces, and an increase in class offerings and enrollment. We do, however, remain constant in our goal to provide the highest quality educational opportunities for young children in our community. 

We see each student and his/her family as an important part of the Westminster legacy. We welcome you to celebrate our history, enjoy the present, and work together with us to build a strong future for the children and families of our community.

Child Care & Drop In Care

Westminster Child Development Center began operating in January of 1983 with an enrollment of eight children and employing two staff. 

Over the years, the demand for high quality child care and education has increased. The Child Development Center grew to six classrooms and an enrollment of close to 100 children. 

Our Child Development Center program offers full day (7 am-6pm) care and education of children ages 3 months to 5 years old.  Our focus is providing your child with experiences and opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, and spiritually, while engaging in developmentally appropriate activities. 

 Our drop in child care program operates 5 days per week from 9am until noon with 2 afternoon sessions on Monday and Wednesday from 12:30-3:30. The program is for children ages 2 to 5 years of age.

WE ARE PROUDLY ACCREDITED
