Learn more about who we are
Interfaith Child Development Center is a non-profit, non-denominational program of The Woodlands Religious Community, Inc. The facility at Lone Star College-Montgomery is licensed by the State of Texas to care for children 18 months through 12 years. For more information about Interfaith of the Woodlands visit our website www.woodlandsinterfaith.org.
Why we care
It is our belief that the child is the reason for the existence of the Child Care 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 Child Care Center is to help each child develop socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and morally in order so that each child becomes a contributing member of society.
