St. Paul's Child Development Center

St. Paul’s Child Development Center is a non-profit center that has been servicing the community since 1992. The Center is licensed by the Department of Health
Services and is a STAR 3 facility in the PA Quality Rating Scale. Our primary objective is to provide an educational, safe, and caring environment for children.
Quality care is our first priority.


The Center provides child-care for children 6 weeks to age 12 including before and after school care for elementary students. We are open 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM
year-round. We also have a summer camp for Kindergarten through 5 th grade. The children are engaged in developmentally appropriate activities which
correspond to the PA Learning Standards throughout their day.

The Child Development Center is overseen by a Board that supports the executive staff as well as oversees the CDC's operations such as personnel, budgeting, administrative issues, mission and future direction. It is comprised of members from St. Paul's Lutheran Church and the Pastor, parents of children in the CDC, community members, and the executive staff of the CDC. Current board members are: Heather McLaughlin, Kristine Balinski, Jennifer Douglas, Michael Collins and Sara Beilharz.
