Congregational Children's Center

daycare - preschool
a ministry of the congregational bible church of shafter

The Children's Center provides one of the very best preschool programs for young children. We give our children an education that prepares them for kindergarten, sharpening their intellectual, creative, cognitive, motor and socio-emotional development. Most importantly, we teach our children about Jesus and His love for us. Early Christian education provides an essential part of the development and growth of an individual.

If you are looking for a preschool or daycare for your child, we offer a variety of options during our 10 month program.
