Children involved in Child Development programs participate in various daily activities at a Child Development Center. These activities include worship and Bible lessons, educational mentoring and tutoring, formal academic training (in some cases), skills training, recreational activities, summer camps and other developmental activities.
While all of our development centers seek to create a safe learning environment for children, each one operates differently, depending on the needs of the local community. Most development centers are after-school programs organized by a local Nazarene church. However, some offer more formal schooling (K-12) and sometimes even dormitories.
Parents and caregivers are significant partners in the development of the children. Meaningful activities including bible study, parental training, and skills training are extended to them in hopes of empowering them to become better care providers for their children.
