If you visit Presbyterian Child Care Center and Preschool (PCCCP) you may hear that phrase from our staff or even the children. It’s the heart of what we believe and directs how we work and play together.

PCCCP was conceived in 1992 by two educators who discovered there was not a licensed infant-preschool program in the Linn-Benton area. From there they devoted many years growing PCCCP into the best licensed child care center in Albany. The support from the United Presbyterian Church (UPC) has come in building usage, monetary gifts, donations of supplies, staff members, volunteers and so much more. Our relationship with UPC allows us to carry out our mission.

Over the last 25 years PCCCP has served hundreds of working families, nurturing children from infancy through kindergarten preparation. PCCCP’s philosophy of learning is to recognize and encourage each child at the level of development that they are at. We delight in each child’s curiosity and imagination. Time is given for self growth and activities are planned for specific developmental areas. Children are given opportunity to share their individuality and grow compassion and appreciation for others.
