Interfaith Child Development Center (the “Center”) is a non-profit program of The Woodlands Religious Community, Inc. doing business as “Interfaith.” Although non-denominational in nature, the Center is governed by a seven (7) member School Board and a twenty-one (21) member Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of clergy, lay delegates and the community at large. The Center’s facility at Lone Star College-Montgomery (the “Montgomery Center”) is licensed by the State of Texas to care for children 18 months through 12 years.
Philosophy and Goals
It is our belief that the child is the reason for the existence of the Center. Therefore, the child is the chief beneficiary of our labors. The fruition of this belief is only realized if the curriculum, events and daily routines evolve around the child.
While each age group has its own specific goals, the overall goal of the school is to help each child develop socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and morally in order so that each child becomes a contributing member of society.
Children attending the Lone Star College-Montgomery Child Care Center will have the opportunity to participate in weekly and monthly lesson plan activities as determined by the Interfaith staff and teachers.
The educational curriculum is centered around a learning environment with lessons planned to directly correlate with particular themes such as numbers, letters, and holidays to name a few. Activities surrounding these themes may include the use of books and the completion of art projects.
School age children are also offered assistance with their homework and completion of required school projects.
The Interfaith staff provides monthly newsletters for parents to involve and educate them on themes and lessons being covered throughout that month. Parents are encouraged to address any educational curriculum concerns or questions with the Interfaith staff.
