January 2023 is a special month for Country Club Methodist Child Development Center. We are celebrating our 5-year anniversary! To celebrate this special anniversary, we are hosting a Family Art Event on Tuesday, January 24th, from 4:30-6:00 p.m.

This event will embody who we are as a center, focusing on process art and building relationships within our CCMCDC community. Families are invited to participate in various art stations together with their children, exploring things like painting, weaving, sculpture, and more. As you experience these art activities with your child, we hope that you will get to see first-hand the wonder and curiosity that open-ended art activities can provoke. Some of this art will become part of a center-wide multimedia mural, incorporating recycled materials and loose parts, that we will hang in the center after the event to celebrate the creativity of our children and families. Other art will go home with you as a memento of the event.   Give opportunities available, sign up here!
