"Each child is special and that 'special-ness' comes from God."

At Central's Children's Center, our goal is to support the growth and preparation of young children for kindergarten through cognitive, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual development. We utilize activities tailored to each child's developmental stage to foster individual progress. Our center is licensed by the Mississippi State Board of Health and currently serves approximately 100 children.

  • Our program offers a variety of activities to help children develop their arts and crafts, language and vocabulary, fine and gross motor skills, perception, pre-math abilities, and sensory experiences.  
  • Our curriculum includes a variety of activities such as songs, finger plays, dramatic play, and free play.
  • Children between the ages of three and four can attend two music lessons per week.
  • Additionally, we hold Christmas and end-of-year programs, as well as fun field trips and classroom parties throughout the year.
  • In the spring, we organize a Trike-A-Thon to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
