"Making a Difference" 


The mission of Melwood Child Development Center is to provide our community with quality child care in a safe and loving Christian environment where children can develop spiritually, socially, mentally, emotionally, and physically.   

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."

Proverbs 22:6 

Statement of Faith . . .

The Child Development Center is a ministry of Melwood Church of the Nazarene. The Board is made up of members of the church who have the desire and commitment to provide the community with quality child care in a loving, nurturing environment. The intent of the church is not to insist on the doctrine of the Nazarene faith but to have the opportunity to serve the parents and children of the community with an active, sincere expression of God's love. Bible lessons will be taught daily with the emphasis on the life and works of Jesus and the love of God. Often stories will be told of the many Bible heroes and lessons teaching character development.
