Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum is used as the road map to guide our teachers with the appropriate skills and tools to develop our children to becoming socially, emotionally, and physically healthy.

 

Roots

WMCDC  is  a ministry  of  Watson Memorial Teaching Ministries, a church that is sensitive to the  needs  and lifestyles   of individuals in the New Orleans and surrounding areas from a culturally relevant experience. Watson Memorial was founded in 1925 by the late Bishop Thomas B. Watson whose desire  was  to  “train  up  children  in the way they should go.”

 

Staff

Our loving staff has been trained by the Pensacola Christian Schools (known for the Abeka Curriculum) and are certified and trained in Pediatric First Aid, CPR, Medication Ad‐ ministration and Infectious Diseases and have received training in Early Childhood  Education.  All  of  our teachers have at least 7 yrs of child care  experience   and are  excited about nurturing your child.
