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

The purpose of Central's Children’s Center is to encourage the development of the preschool child and give preparation for kindergarten with emphasis on social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development.  CCC uses developmentally appropriate activities to encourage the child to progress at his or her own rate.  CCC is licensed by the Mississippi State Board of Health and enrolls approximately 100 children. 


  • Arts and crafts, language and vocabulary activities, fine and gross motor activities, perception skills, pre-math activities, sensory experiences, songs/finger plays, dramatic play and free play
  • Three and four year olds participate in music twice a week
  • Present a program at Christmas and at the end of the year

  • Field trips are a fun part of our year, as are classroom parties
  • In the spring, we have a Trike-A-Thon, which raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
