The Children's Center serves children ages 24 months to 5 years old in its kids' day out and preschool programs.

Registration is based on a first-come basis. Registration must be completed on a registration form for returning families and a registration form or enrollment form for new families.

Families who are currently enrolled are given preference for enrollment as long as it is done before open enrollment. Returning families and families of First Presbyterian Church are given preference before open enrollment to the community, as long as it is done before the open enrollment time frame.
