About Us – Saint Mark Child Development Center

We Are All About You


If you want your child to be in a loving, Christian environment with faith based lessons, with an ultimate goal of preparing your child to exceed the recommended expectations for Kindergarten, then Saint Mark CDC is just right for you and your child.

Saint Mark Child Development Center was founded in 1997 and has approximately 17 staff members and provides care for approximately 70-90 children. Saint Mark is committed to providing a loving, Christian environment full of educational experiences for young children. Teachers are well trained and receive 15 hours of education and training each year in research based childcare practices. We provide opportunities for children to grow emotionally, socially, developmentally, and spiritually.

Our hours are from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. We operate as an all year center offering care for children as young as 6 weeks and as old as 5 years.   We specialize in preschool and Kindergarten readiness. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a tour of the facility, please call and set up an appointment at 882-0333.
