Here at College Park United, we pride ourselves in being an open and loving community of faith whose mission is to love big on those within our reach, including our wonderful littles at the CDC. Our Child Development Center is one of the most cherished aspects of our church, providing us with joy, light and wonder. Our school is a ministry of our church, although we certainly do not discriminate against any other faith-based backgrounds.

Our mission is to accept each child as a unique individual, blessed with talents and gifts, worthy of recognition and praise, and to provide each child a safe, loving and effective Christian environment that promotes growing and learning in the light of His love.
